It would be interesting to look at ‘opportunity to learn’ metrics at each TSCN site,

** Opportunity to Learn and Equity:Measuring Effort in STEM

** Secondary school physics availability in an urban setting: Issues related to academic achievement and course offerings

** Inequities in Physics Access and Enrollment in Urban High Schools

** The Effects of Opportunity to Learn, Family Socioeconomic Status, and Friends on the Rural Math Achievement Gap in High School

and the extent to which the YLTs make decisions to close their self-perceived opportunity and cognitive gaps. I think such a paper will be illuminating both in terms of putting a light on the opportunity gaps, and also on how the students themselves would close those gaps with the freedom and resources of TSCN.
