    This article, published in ASCD's Educational Leadership, examines how students' views about their opportunities in school and about student-teacher relationships correlate with students' levels of motivation, effort, and achievement. After analyzing survey responses, the authors conclude that the "opportunity gap" some students face has three key elements: the expectations gap, the relationships gap, and the participation gap.
