Historically, there are persistent differences between the high school graduation rates and standardized test scores of white and black students.* These differences narrowed between the mid-1960s and the late-1980s as the educational outcomes of black students improved dramatically. Then, for reasons that previous academic and policy researchers have been unable to explain, this progress stopped.
In a recent working paper, HEMA faculty member Craig Garthwaite and co-authors propose the rise of crack cocaine markets as an explanation for the end to the convergence in black-white educational outcomes beginning in the mid-1980s.
For more information on this study, visit Prof. Garthwaite's research page.* For data on the test score gap, see Jencks and Phillips (1998), Neal (2006) and Magnuson and Waldfogel (2008). For data on the high school graduation gap, see Rivkin (1995), Heckman and LaFontaine (2010).
