Average scores on the SAT college entrance exam dipped slightly for the high school class of 2009, while gender, race and income gaps widened, according to figures released Tuesday by the College Board.
Interesting counter to the ACT scores.
Things to note:
(1) scores dropped 1 point in critical reading and writing, no drop in math (out of 800 in each section)
(2) gender, race, and income gaps are widening
Again, the year-to-year hub-bub over scores is silly to me. One point here or there isn't anything to throw a fit over. But continually widening gaps is a trend that concerns me.
