Bridging The Gap has identified a bold solution to a historical deficiency of the college town for the oldest public university in America -- the longstanding racial achievement gap in its K-12 public school system is among the nation's worst. Danita Mason-Hogans' expertise in education and her vision provide promise to families descended from the people who built and sustained this university and town but have historically been neglected in education, among other areas.

Chapel Hill has the 2nd largest achievement gap in the country because of the specific labor force that Chapel Hill has helped to create and maintain for many many years. There needs to be a targeted solution to address this issue and Bridging the Gap provides a solution.
