Equality Research & Resources

“The fact that Raleigh and Durham are home to some of the largest achievement gaps in the nation must serve as an immediate call to action for leaders across the state,” said Ethan Gray, founder and CEO of Education Cities. “Every day, children from low­ income families in these cities are being denied the opportunities they need to thrive. We encourage local officials to learn from cities with smaller achievement gaps, and redouble their efforts to provide all students with equitable schools.”

Education may be the key to solving broader American inequality, but we have to solve educational inequality first. Harvard’s Ronald Ferguson, director of The Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard University, says there is progress being made, there are encouraging examples to emulate, that an early start is critical, and that a lot of hard work lies ahead. But he also says, “There’s nothing more important we can do."
