Time to Bet on Black in 2017

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

I am going to be on a panel at the Arizona Townhall tomorrow about racial achievement gaps, so this had me taking a look at data. Arizona’s Black students had the highest NAEP 8th grade math scores in the country in 2015, so this got me curious to how close this would get them to the lowest average statewide scores for White students (not that this bar is high enough but better to pass it than not and sooner rather than later or never).

Put me down for $20 on the 2017 NAEP- I’m betting on Arizona Black baby!
