The pay gap can defined as a difference in earnings between men and woman. This gap can be caused by a number of factors, including race, ethnicity, education and more.

In my process of completing my project I choose to interview school officials that work in the main office of my high school. I asked them to share with me anything they felt was important to include about their experiences, as it relates to the pay gap issue.
