by | Oct 24, 2022 | Press Release

The following statement can be attributed to Dia Bryant, executive director of The Education Trust–New York:

“We remain deeply concerned about persistent gaps in outcomes between White students and students of color, many of which have widened during the pandemic based on data released today for the National Assessment of Educational Progress and the New York State Assessments. These data reports underscore the critical need for state and local education leaders to act with the greatest urgency to drive resources and support to students most impacted by interrupted instruction these last three years. School districts have unprecedented levels of new federal and state aid and must invest these funds in evidence-based strategies targeted to student needs.”
