Surprising new research suggests that children who stand to lose the most ground academically in the U.S. public school systems are the brightest African-American students. One study suggests that the black/white student ratio plays an important role. Schools with a higher percentage of African Americans often lack funding, possess teachers with less experience, and students have lower test scores overall. Another factor that might play a significant role is the level of education African American parents have. Studies continue to investigate how these and other factors influence student test scores.
