Participation Gap For Low-Income And Minority Students Taking Algebra I In Eighth Grade Growing In Kansas City.

The Kansas City (MO) Star (9/12, Robertson) reports low-income and minority students are less likely to take Algebra I in eighth grade when compared to their peers in Kansas City, and the participation gap has increased since 2010. ED data shows that the gap is a national trend. While 38% of all seventh and eighth grade students are black or Latino, only 29% of students who pass Algebra 1 in those grades are part of those minority groups.
