A Washington school district removed Asian students from their “students of color” category after data showed they were doing too well academically.
The resulting data was used to imply students of color — minus Asians — were doing worse than white students.
But when a minority demographic did better than the district expected, officials reclassified them with white students, skewing the data.
And without Asian students represented, it actually provides a wider opportunity gap for minority students to close, painting a far bleaker picture.
If Native American students do poorly in math versus Hispanic students, but Black students do better than white students, you’ll have to come up with four different strategies?
