asked you to explain why you keep promoting false and racist claims. You refused.
Consider that what you claim is utterly contradicted by these charts - for some of the ages there are significant increases in performance in these last years to 2008 since 1990, and for two of the six charts there has been a statistically significant narrowing in the gaps in question.
Look at the scores for black 9 and 13 year olds. They respectively went from 208 to 224 and from 249 to 262.
Look at the scores for Hispanic 9 and 13 year olds. They respectively went from 214 to 234 and from 255 to 268.
The scores roughly went sideways during this time for all the black 17 year olds but went up for the Hispanic 17 year olds, from 284 to 293.
The gap narrowed even during this time period statistically significantly for the 9 and 17 year old white-Hispanic comparison, respectively 21 to 16 and 26 to 21.
The gap stayed roughly the same since 1990 in the white-black comparison for 9 and 13 year olds only because the white scores went up as well during this time.
All this proves false the racist claims you keep promoting that it's not possible to improve black and Hispanic scores since 1990, that improving black and Hispanic scores somehow hurts whites, that public schools are trying to improve black and Hispanic scores but not white scores, and that no gap has narrowed to statistically significant extents since 1990.
And not only that, it's also just not true that all the gaps narrowed from 1973 to 1990 because, to quote you, it is "obvious that the gains to be had in the early days was simply getting kids into school." (Your claim here is essentially this: Blacks and Hispanics had to go to school in 1973? Wow! I didn't know that!) They were already in school by 1973. We had compulsory education laws not only in 1973, but every state in the country had these laws since 1917: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_education#Modern_Era Quote: "Compulsory school attendance on this model gradually spread to other countries, reaching the American State of Massachusetts in 1852, and spreading to other states until, in 1917, Mississippi was the last state to enact a compulsory attendance law." The idea that they were not in school in 1973 is an idea that is very condescending toward black and Hispanic people.
You really do need to stop this putting forth falsity as if it were fact. And you need to answer the questions I keep putting to you, to be found most recently in that last post of mine further above.
