The opportunity gap disproportionately impacts students of color who come from low-income backgrounds. The demographic inequalities black and Hispanic students in the United States face in comparison to their white peers put them at a disadvantage before they even enter school. When combined with the educational disparities known as the achievement gap, students of color often have to overcome more challenges to have an equal chance at life's opportunities.
