Given the statistics published by The Urban Institute, gathered from The National Center for Education Statistics, we can notice a high probability that, in addition to the Mayor taking charge of the school system, as well longer school hours, the high influx of whites and educated residents into the District skew the meaning of positive test results. Additionally, we must note that while overall Proficiency Rates improved, those of Latino, Black, and minority students declined. Can we come, then, to the conclusion that what is true of the whole is not true of its parts? Meaning, does this overall improvement in the district's test scores fail to account for struggling minorities?
