City Limits: Winds of Change- Addressing the Longstanding Achievement Gap from Georgia to Syracuse

first_day_in_person_2020_hallway_brianna_langlois.jpg

In this edition of City Limits: Winds of Change, we begin with how Georgia State University has dramatically narrowed the achievement gap by increasing the graduation rate by 74-percent within 15 years.  Author Andrew Gumbel discusses how the college dramatically turned things around for Black, low-income students.  We’ll then have a look into Syracuse area programs that guide students through school and lead them on a pathway to college or job readiness skills.
