Uline, Cynthia L. ed; Johnson, Joseph F. Jr ed




A special issue on closing achievement gaps is presented. Articles discuss the development of the standards movement, student-invloved classroom assessment, the appeal of "universalized pedagogies" in the field of education, the need for teacher education programs to promote social justice and accountability, the role of professional development in closing the achievement gap, the Interstate School Leadership Licensure Consortium standards, three key strategies that district and school leaders can use to reconceptualize accountability policy, and how external technical assistance can help a school's staff improve student performance and eliminate the achievement gap. An annotated directory of resources that focus on how schools can close the achievement gap is also provided.
