Minnesota report cards shows noticeable achievement gap when it comes to demographics

Posted:

Minnesota's Annual Yearly Progress report card was released Tuesday, and overall the state is doing well. But tests results show there's still room for improvement, especially when it comes to math.

Statistics show that Minnesota's achievement gap is shrinking, but there is a noticeable gap when the demographics are broken down. According to Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota has gone up in its proficiency rating in Reading and Science, but when it comes to Math, Minnesota sits at 60.2%. 

Down 3 percent from last year. White students rate 62.3%, Asian children sit at 61%, Hispanic kids at 42.2%, but Black and Native American students are only 37.7%. Despite the gap, all students are on track according to The Minnesota Department of Education.

Rochester Public School District as a whole is down 0.8% in math. The Austin Public School District is down 1.9% in math. The Albert Lea Public School District has fallen 2.1% in math. Winona Area Public School District is down 8.4% in math.
