  14. Clearly, we have a lot of heavy lifting to do.

  15. During seventies and eighties we made a lot of progress...

  16. But that progress stopped during the nineties

  17. Gaps Narrow, Then Hold Steady or Widen: NAEP Math Scores, 13 Year-Olds Source: US Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics. NAEP 1999 Trends in Academic Progress (p. 108) Washington, DC: US Department of Education, August 2000

  19. By End of High School We Can See the Same Patterns

  33. One measure on which we rank high?Inequality!

  34. To Make Matters Worse, HS Completion Declining • Proportion of students getting h.s. diploma declining; • Number opting for GED increasing; • U.S. slips from 1st in the world in h.s. completion to 14th

  36. Not surprisingly, the consequences of the achievement gap reach beyond high school
