How do Duncan & Murnane account for the gap in academic achievement between high and low income students Research Paper

Consider the following questions as you complete the assigned readings in your text and here: 1.How do Duncan & Murnane account for the gap in academic achievement between high and low income students? Given the theoretical frameworks we have examined in the past few weeks how might these gaps be addressed in your opinion? 2. Head Start has been described as the nation’s flagship program for addressing the needs of young low-income children and their families so as to optimize their opportunity for later school success. In this chapter Edward Zigler (often described as the father of head Start) describes its history and identified issues of concern about the program’s future (many of which continue to be at issue currently.) Which of the issues he describes do you find especially troubling and why? How do these issues seem likely to be of concern for other intervention programs and why?
