NPR has just began a three-week series on money and schools:
Over the next three weeks, the NPR Ed Team will unveil a vast collection of “School Money” stories told in collaboration with station reporters across the country. Our goal: To give voice to this school-funding imbalance and to explain what happens when many of America’s poorest students also attend its poorest schools.
Here’s one cause for alarm: The achievement gap between this nation’s wealthiest and poorest students is growing dramatically, not shrinking.
Their first story also includes a nation-wide interactive map.
I’m adding this info to The Best Sites For Learning That Money Does Matter For Schools.
