Abstract

The article examines the research conducted by Ronald G. Fryer and Steven D. Levitt, focusing on differences by grade in the black-white test score gap in reading and mathematics, based on analyses of data on the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS-K) in the U.S. The types of school quality indicators used are discussed. A comparison between the data sets of ECLS-K and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is also presented.
