If schools focus solely on delivering academic content, they limit their ability to create fully successful students. The resulting achievement gap between students who have vast resources outside of the school environment versus those who do not have such privileges must be addressed. Schools need to integrate high-quality services into their models in an interdependent way in order to have any real chance at closing the achievement gap for low-income students.

In the report, The Educator's Dilemma: When and How Schools Should Embrace Poverty Relief, researchers examine two dominate approaches: school-based interventions and programs focused on health and well-being to determine which approach best works towards overcoming the race and poverty gap.
