Document Number: 3192At Home and in School: Racial and Ethnic Gaps in Educational Preparedness - This brief looks at conditions from early childhood through high school that contribute to or indicate educational achievement, focusing in particular on differences across racial/ethnic groups. The report finds that by almost every indicator, Hispanic and black children are at a disadvantage when compared to white and Asian children. Even though the data here is specific to California, it does have implications for other state policies. (Jennifer Y.
