A report from the National Center for Education Statistics, National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), on 2009 Mathematics and Reading assessments was released yesterday. Generally, Washington is following the National trend, which is not a good thing in this case as the National trend is that even though scores have gone up overall, no progress has been made in the past 20 years in actually closing the gap between Hispanic students and Non-Hispanic White students. For one set of measures, Washington’s gap was significantly higher than the National average “The Hispanic-White achievement score gap in mathematics for public school students at grade 8.”

The full report is online at:

Ed Week has an interesting article outlining the findings on a National level http://ow.ly/5pKto
