Willie, Charles V.
Urban Education, v36 n4 p461-78 Sep 2001
Examined standardized test scores of black and white elementary and middle school students in impoverished, socioeconomically mixed, and affluent schools. The proportion of students performing at or above the U.S. norm was higher in affluent schools for both racial groups. The 36 percentage points separating black and white students overall in favor of whites was consistent across all socioeconomic levels. (SM)
