BIPPS in Louisville Business First: The experience gap in Jefferson County schools

There are many gaps contributing to the poor performance of the Jefferson County Public Schools, including the well-publicized academic achievement gap between whites and minorities and the common-sense gaps which are unmistakable in the district's busing and student-assignment policies.

I write about it in today's Louisville Business First.

Dick Innes offers additional analysis of the JCPS teacher-experience gap in this recent blog entry.
