Creating Socially Responsible Citizens: Cases from the Asia-Pacific Region

John J. Cogan

Why Culture Counts by Donna Walker-Tileston & Sandra DarlingCurrent models do not address the complexity of achievement gaps among racial and socioeconomic groups. As the National Task Force on Minority High Achievement and current assessment data show, children of color, even those who are not poor, often score lower on achievement tests than whites who are poor. Culture trumps poverty in its impact on achievement. Culture defines what children will focus their attention on, how they interpret the world to give it meaning, what background knowledge they bring to learning, and how they will value that learning.
