I don't get it...

I don’t get it…

Boys are improving, Girls improving faster = no crisis

Minorities improving, Whites improving faster = crisis

Standardized tests = bad, unreliable if they show racial/ethnic achievement gap

Standardized tests = not bad, unreliable if they show boys and girls relatively equal

Grades = important for college

Grades = unimportant for measuring gender gap

Thanks!

Trusting this report is like trusting a realtor to tell you the truth about whether its a good time to buy a house... the answer is always yes.
