More Blacks in Fairfax and Montgomery Pass AP

June 29, 2007

. . . so the WaPost reports Tuesday. Eduwonk says the real issue is what is happening to black kids in districts that are not as well-functioning as Fairfax and Montgomery.

One thing I would like to see is a class breakdown of the scores. The Post reports that almost half of Montgomery county African-American students qualify for free or reduced lunch. But that does not answer the key question, which is how many of the kids earning the passing AP scores come from the group of low-income minority students. More passing scores should be applauded; more passing scores from low-income students is even more impressive.
