Racial Achievement Gap

WLUK FOX 11

WLUK FOX 11 and WBAY ABC 2 each reported at 5 p.m. the results of the latest Badger Exam. Each station reported on a “racial achievement gap”. It is part of the liberal doctrine to see everything through a racial filter and to cherry pick information to push a narrative. Thus, FOX 11 reported “… a breakdown by race shows that African American students scoring far below white students in (math and language arts).”

Pushing the spin that the color of one’s skin is the factor to focus on regarding low test scores, FOX 11 omits the fact that Asians and Pacific Islanders were close in score to that of white students. FOX 11 also fails to report the link between single parent households and lower student test scores.

According to the 2012 Census Report: Black children (55 percent) and Hispanic children (31 percent) were more likely to live with one parent than non-Hispanic White children (21 percent) or Asian children (13 percent).

In 2011, married-couple households made up 81 percent of the family households that an Asian householder maintained and 80 percent that a White, non-Hispanic householder maintained. The corresponding proportion among Hispanic and Black householders was smaller: 62 percent and 44 percent, respectively.

Here is the full text of the FOX 11 report:

But here’s where educators say they do see a gap. A breakdown by race shows that African American students scoring far below white students in both areas. The Bader Exam was new this year. It is being replaced next year by a different exam.
