    The scores, being released today, show that the achievement gap between the top-scoring students — Asians and whites — and the lowest scoring — African Americans, Hispanics and American Indians — has grown slightly between 2007 and 2011.

    • for whites, 22.1 in 2007 to 22.4 in 2011
    • for African Americans, the score remained at 17 for both years

    2011 ACT scores show problems with college readiness - The Answer Sheet - The Washington Post

    There isn't one piece of data that shows whites and blacks as equal...Honestly, there's at least solid data in supporting of my beliefs.

    Here is a chart from 2006-2010 of Whites, Asians, blacks, meso's
    (ACT)
    Average ACT Composite Test Scores by Race/Ethnicity, 2006

    This shows the gap staying between 21-29 points.

    Gap at age 17 increased. Which is most important when dealing with people going towards a higher education.



    SAT scores for 2006

    Quote from attached SAT/ACT article:

    "Readiness for college science and math coursework was particularly low among
    African American students. Only 5 percent of African American test-takers scored
    at or above the college-readiness benchmark for college biology, and just 10
    percent attained the readiness benchmark for college algebra. Ferguson said
    Black students were less likely than others to take tough, college-prep courses
    and "often don't receive the information and guidance they need to properly plan
    for college."

    I pray to god that we can close this or we're going down.

    "We"? How about "them". Parental guidance, cultural responsibility, individual dicipline?

    Self-identity, leadership, peer support.

    Or is it a teacher's fault? That's it- the education system has failed minorities?

    Closing the gap is easy. The normal method is to give easier questions to the dumber ones. The real challenge would be how to make the dumber ones smarter.

    How do we make the black population as smart as the white population? That's the question at hand for the sake of our country.

    Will we ever close the gap between white and blacks??? Nope... As long as blacks accept affirmative action over personal responsibility from the liberal elitist whites who profess to fight for them, and have conned them into believing that they have their best interests in mind... Minorities will forever be viewed upon as people who are simply not equal to everyone else. Blacks have to understand, when you sleep with liberal dogs you get fleas.

    Until they close the over 80 point SAT(No matter the class), 4.5 point ACT GAP between themselves and whites. They will be at a huge disadvantaged against whites.

    The world model for discipline, academic excellence and self reliance would belong soley to the Asians.

    Their allegiance to family first and the economic development of their communities, have positioned them to prosper for many generations to come.

    There are numerous whites who post here that I would shudder to think that blacks in general would seek to emulate.

    Not until we get rid of all the racists and moron voters. Well I don't have to explain that to you.
