The discussion of the racial gap in student achievement continues to be one of the most important discussions in education today; particularly as it relates to the underachievement of children of color. Equally challenging for educators is the continued underachievement of at-risk students across racial and ethnic groups. In this high-energy, interactive workshop, Principal Kafele asserts that the greatest difficulty to closing the achievement gap is the overwhelming assumption that the achievement gap is in fact, the problem.
