Storyline

The gap between low-income and middle- and upper-income students' scores is called the achievement gap and Connecticut's is the widest of any state in the nation. It exists in most Connecticut towns, urban or suburban, wealthy or poor. In addition, across the state, 135 schools have been labeled "In Need of Improvement" for five years or more. Closing the gap and turning around failing schools is critical not only for the lives of students, but also for the future well being of the entire state and its economy. It impacts our workforce, state budget and even our incarceration rate. This three-part series examines recommendations and best practices for closing the educational gap that threatens a generation of children and the state's prosperity in general. The documentary also looks at ways to raise achievement for all Connecticut students whatever their income status. Written by Connecticut Public TV
