Finishing up with the 10th grade…


An alert reader pointed out to me yesterday that the statistics in the following article are INCORRECT, because they pertain to a mixture of both regular DC public schools AND the charter schools. I am working to fix that, separate out both the public schools and the charter schools, and will report what I find out.

My apologies. GFB.


I got busy, had to stop  before finishing with the 10th grade 2010 DC-CAS results. I will try to fix that.

First of all, DC-CAS ‘pass’ rates for Asian and White 10th-grade DCPS students for 2007 through 2010:

Here, I see some overall improvement over the past 4 years, although not much change in reading from ’09 to 2010.


First, let’s look at gaps between black and white students in reading and math from 2007 to 2010:

What I see is that from 2009 to 2010, the gap got much larger in math; and in reading, the gap is nearly the same in 2010 as it was in 2007.

Let’s look at the Hispanic-white gaps:

Here the changes are pretty dramatic, in that whatever improvements were made from 2007 to 2008 or 2009 have been almost completely reversed in the last year or two!
