Abstract

This research the impact of technology on the between black and white student performance. The exploration of the theories, methods, performance results, and principals of the evaluated research reveals implications and factors that suggest a possible oversight in addressing the black-white test score gap. Efforts using technology to close the gap will be discussed. The No Child Left Behind Act attempted to address the low performance of African American and students from low income homes. The negative impact of chronic absenteeism on academic performance is discussed. Many causal factors, such as Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS), are investigated. Many works suggest that efforts were made to reduce the gap and symptoms were acknowledged, but the historical nexus has never been included or acknowledged. This research will make that connection and suggest a strategy to close the gap that has not yet been presented. Keywords: chronic-absenteeism, technology, performance, test-score gap
