“Super Subgroup”

Jefferson City

DESE releases preliminary 2015-16 MAP data.

Same old same old.  That pesky gap just won’t go away.

In the initial report, DESE combines blacks, Hispanics, low income students, disabled students and English learners, all groups that for various reasons would score lower than native-born whites, into one big category of the disadvantaged, termed here the super subgroup.  That’s going to create a problem down the line.  After all, on which side of the ledger do you put transgender students?  It’s already a hassle to figure out which restrooms and locker rooms they should use.




It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
