In 2014, the high school graduation rate for white students was 87 percent, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. For black students, the rate was 73 percent. Test scores show a similar racial gap.
To be sure, many factors contribute to the achievement gap, including home and neighborhood environments and school factors unrelated to teachers' performance. But one dynamic is becoming impossible to ignore: Notable differences in the way black students are treated by teachers and school administrators.*
Jasper Academy’s academic enrichment program is designed to help close the academic achievement gap. Our facilitators can relate to our children and provide nurturing support.
Our goal is to ensure our children are focused, motivated and confident in their academic skills.
Let’s work together to help our children beat the odds.Visit Jasper Academy
