The Math Achievement Gap in PAUSD Schools


by :

This research project is about the apparent discrepancy with the education level in a math class of those living in lower-income neighborhoods that attend PAUSD schools. Despite PAUSD’s attempts to provide help for these students through the use of IEP plans and support classes, this problem remains and continues to negatively impact lower-income students who are not receiving the same caliber of education in math as their white peers. This research aims to study the root causes of the math achievement gap and solutions to address it within the PAUSD school district.
