Income and Opportunity Levels are Correlated with Academic Success



There are many statistics showing that poverty is correlated with reduced academic achievement, including the data that drives the San Mateo County Office of Education and San Mateo County Health's BIG/LIFT initiative to increase 3rd Grade reading levels.

This is the "Opportunity Gap" that leads to our students' "Achievement Gap" and it deserves our ongoing attention toward solutions that will lead to improved academic and life success of all students in San Mateo County.
