A new study from researchers Eric Hanushek (Stanford University), Paul E. Peterson (Harvard University), and Ludger Woessmann (University of Munich) finds that U.S. schools do as badly at teaching those from better-educated families as they do at teaching those from less well-educated families.

Peterson presented the findings from this study at an event on May 12 and took part in a discussion with Mitchell D. Chester, Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education in Massachusetts, and Gerard Robinson, Vice President of Partnerships, UniversityNow.
