USA - Elizabeth Brown: 'Closing the Gap in Reading'

My 22 years teaching reading to hundreds of students has given me a great deal of anecdotal research that shows gaps closing for my minority inner city students. The shocking infographic from the New York Times “Money, Race and Success” [1] article showing as much as a 6 year gap for minority students prompted me to reexamine the research for hard evidence.
