Why the gap between Black and White performance in school? A report on the effects of race on student achievement in the St. Louis Public Schools

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This report, which was submitted to the court during the 1996 Liddell hearings, has been divided into two parts and revised to incorporate points raised during Trent's testimony on March 19, 1996. Part one analyzes the effects of race on student achievement and is based on data supplied by the St. Louis Public School District, including its student master file for 1994-95, cohort files covering four cohorts of students, and call-in enrollment data files. Part two draws on national survey data, and focuses on the effects of race on education, employment, and attitudes. The policy implications of both sets of findings are discussed.
