Mind the Gap: Why Good Schools are Failing Black Students

Producer Nancy Solomon says:

Well-funded suburban schools are doing a good job educating white students. Yet black and hispanic students, even kids from middle-class families, are falling behind.

Solomon looks into why this is so in her hour-long radio documentary “Mind the Gap: Why Good Schools are Failing Black Students.” The piece won a 2010 Peabody Award and was broadcast on WFPL Friday. The full documentary is available online.
