Pass rates among black, charter-school, 3rd graders in DC

Once you look at this data, you see that neither the charter schools nor the regular public schools seem to be doing a great job in getting black third-graders to perform well on whatever it is that is on the DC-CAS.

And of course, that’s one of my complaints: the DC-CAS, like all of the other standardized tests that I have looked at, sucks. It doesn’t measure much of anything except for your family’s wealth and education levels.
