All data specifically 7th grade math in 2018.
If you are a 7th graders in Illinois and you are low income, you are probably not successful in school. There are only two 7th grade classes with more than 50% poverty above the 50 percentile on PARCC in the whole state.
This is schools so if your school has more than about 10% of students chronically truant, your school is in the bottom have of proficiency.
Having an all white school is not a guarantee of proficiency, The best school in the state is only 40% white.
At actually looks as if as schools pass the 90% white percentage they start falling. Of course the schools that are less than 20% white are all below the 50th percentile. I wonder if they correlate to the high poverty threshold? My point here is that diversity is a strength, I don't know why I feel it necessary to explicitly say that.
Schools with high rates of mobility (students moving in and out of district) perform worse on the PARCC test.
At about 10% it looks like all schools are below the 50th percentile.
Would helping people find and keep housing over the years help improve grades?
