But Achievement and Graduation Rates Remain Far Too Low

  • Black students are disproportionately classified.

  • Too few students with disabilities are in general education settings in the Big Five Cities.

  • Achievement in Grades 3-8 is a fraction of what it should be.

  • Successful outcomes (graduation) are too low.

  • Too many students are dropping out of school.
