single most important slide I’ve seen in a while

Much ink has been spilled debated the relative importance of class v. race in shaping the later life outcomes. I’ve certainly argued with good friends and colleagues ad nauseam on this (h/t Dayna Minatodani and Susan Nakaoka). In this slide we see engagement gaps, reported by teachers. The differences are largest for low SES children compared to higher SES children, much lower than race. This certainly doesn’t resolve the debate, but adds some weight to the class argument.
