Have we made progress on achievement gaps? Looking at evidence from the new NAEP results
from The Brookings Institution
Recently, the National Assessment Governing Board and National Center for Education Statistics released results from the 2017 National Assessment of Education Progress. Often referred to as "the Nation's Report Card," these results provide a bi-annual barometer on how states and the country as a whole are performing in the classroom. This year's results are particularly noteworthy because they are from the final NAEP administered before implementation of the new Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced No Child Left Behind. In this sense, these results reflect a boundary in the timeline of education policy, demarcating the end of the NCLB era and the beginning of the ESSA era.
