      Closing the Achievement Gap

      In his 2008 State of Education address, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jack O’Connell, announced that Closing The Achievement Gap (CTAG) was the California Department of Education’s top priority.

      The U.S. Department of Education describes the achievement gap as the difference in academic performance between different ethnic groups. In California, the gap is defined as the disparity between white students and other ethnic groups and between English learners and native English speakers, socioeconomically disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged, and students with disabilities as compared to students without disabilities. In February 2007, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell announced his intent to lead an effort to identify ways the state can better assist counties, districts, and schools in their efforts to close California’s achievement gap.
