Join us to discuss Fordham’s recently published report Excellence Gaps by Race and Socioeconomic Status.
“Excellence gaps,” or disparities in advanced academic performance between student groups, have important implications for both academic equity and American economic competitiveness. Although considerable work has explored how and why these excellence gaps occur, what’s not been examined closely is the connection between excellence gaps and students’ race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
On October 24th at 4:00 pm ET, Fordham will host an in-person discussion of how race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status interact to shape excellence gaps, how those gaps have evolved over time, and key implications for educators and policymakers looking to address these disparities. After an introduction by Michael J. Petrilli, report author Meredith Coffey will summarize the report’s findings, followed by a panel discussion moderated by the Washington Post’s Laura Meckler.
