International Evidence on Ability Grouping With Curriculum Differentiation and the Achievement Gap in Secondary Schools
This article reviews international research on the connection between various forms of ability grouping with curriculum differentiation and the achievement gap.

Furthermore, there is a stronger link between students’ social backgrounds and their achievement in educational systems with more curriculum differentiation and in those with earlier placement in differentiated educational programs as compared with others.
