Title:  Educational Achievement and Black-White Inequality
Description: This report explores the relationship between black-white differences in educational achievement and subsequent educational and economic outcomes, including college attendance, college completion, and employment and earnings. Using data from the late 1970s through the early 1990s, this study makes comparisons between overall disparities between blacks and whites, and disparities between blacks and whites with similar levels of educational achievement, as measured by mathematics and reading test scores.
