Twin Cities Achievement Gap Library

The Achievement Gap Committee provides educational and networking opportunities for people in the Twin Cities metro area working to close the achievement gap, and monitors ongoing initiatives. The achievement gap has been debated for decades locally and many initiatives and reforms have been tried. Meanwhile, the gap grew and Minnesota now has the distinction of having one of the worst achievement gaps in the nation. There is little if any institutional memory around the many local efforts. For effective policymaking and advocacy, this information needs to be centrally organized and easily accessible. Christine Manganaro, a Ph.D. student in the Medical School, gathered information on local achievement gap initiatives and began to organize this data for use in a website. The results are being used to develop a one-stop online library for those concerned about the achievement gap.
