Report Shows North Carolina Leading the Nation in Closing the Achievement Gap

North Carolina is a national leader in student achievement gains by African-Americans, Latinos, and white students on national exams according to a report released recently by the Washington, DC-based, The Education Trust. The report, Education Watch, details student achievement and other indicators of student performance in the 50 states.

In 2001, the National Education Goals reported that North Carolina lead the nation in progress in 4th and 8th grade math in the decade of the 1990ís. This most recent report shows that not only did North Carolina lead the nation in progress overall, but its African-American and Latino 4th grade students were making more gains in math than their peers in all other states and were among the nationís leaders in gains in reading.

North Carolina ranked first in the nation in gains for African-American, Latino, and white students on both the 4th and 8th grade NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) math exams. On the 4th grade reading exam, North Carolina ranked second in gains among Latinos on the 8th grade science assessment.#

The Education Trustís rankings on achievement gains on National Assessment for Educational Progress exams were based on state participation on math, reading, and science tests between 1990 and 2000. For more information, go to www.edtrust.org.
