An inquiry was done to determine why there were no African American students in the advanced placement math classes and why there were next to none in the honor and more advanced math classes. The inquiry also looked into the large number of these students in the lowest level classes.
Seniors of all races in all classes were studied. The person doing the study found that many African American students came to the school with high marks and standardized scores yet none of them advanced very far in the school. Caucasian and Asian students, sometimes with lower scores moved up.
Many years have passed since the inquiry was done. Nothing has changed. The people in charge should be ashamed of themselves. In fact, I hope they see themselves in this post. And, the teachers in the school should be ashamed because they have done nothing to change the situation.
