SAT 2010: Scores by Group
THE COLLEGE BOARD is reported to be “encouraged by [the] lack of change” in the 2010 SAT results — presumably this means they were expecting them to be worse — and, as we can see, part of this “lack of change” is the perennial reality of racial differences in performance, which despite decades of time and trillions of dollars dedicated to eradicating them, persist. These differences persist because they are rooted in genetic differences between the human races which can never be erased.
