Gaping Holes

Bright minorities don't get a fair shake. As I understand the article, we're closing the gender/race gaps for MINIMAL achievement but not for top performers.

Interesting angle on the pursuit of excellence in education. Perhaps excellence is not so much everyone achieving a certain level but everyone being able to excel as their are capable.

Sounds like a case for one-to-one computing models of teaching.
