The Opportunity Gap

Is Your State Providing Equal Access to Education?

ProPublica analyzed federal education data from the 2009-2010 school year to examine whether states provide high-poverty schools equal access to advanced courses and special programs that researchers say will help them later in life. This is the first nationwide picture of exactly which courses are being taken at which schools and districts across the country. More than three-quarters of all public school children are represented. Read our story and our methodology .

Northdale Middle School, part of the Anoka-Hennepin Public School District, is located in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. The school reports enrolling 1,255 students in grades six through eight, and it has 71 teachers on staff.

Northdale Middle School is above both the state and district averages for the percentage of students eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunch. On average, 30 percent of students in Minnesota qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, while 33 percent of students at Northdale Middle School do. At the district level, 26 percent of students qualify.

ProPublica’s analysis found that all too often, states and schools provide poor students fewer educational programs like Advanced Placement, gifted and talented programs, and advanced math and science classes. Studies have linked participation in these programs with better outcomes later in life. Our analysis uses free and reduced-price lunch to estimate poverty at schools. We based our findings on the most comprehensive data set of access to advanced classes and special programs in U.S. public schools — known as the Civil Rights Data Set— released by the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights.

The school hasn’t reported or may not have a gifted and talented program.

Folwell Middle School , in Minneapolis, Minn., is a higher-poverty school than Northdale Middle School, with 89 percent of its students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. The school hasn’t reported or may not have a gifted and talented program.

These data points were reported by schools and districts to the Office for Civil Rights. For more information about the data, see our full methodology .
