Supplementary Education: The Hidden Curriculum of High Academic Achievement

Supplementary Education: The Hidden Curriculum of High Academic Achievement (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book makes the case and lays the conceptual foundation for the significance of supplementary education in reducing the academic achievement gap between majority students and students of color. It further elaborates on the idea of supplementary education, which is based on the assumption that high academic achievement is closely associated with exposure to family and community-based activities and learning experiences that occur outside of school in support of academic learning.
