In the public schools of predominantly black Detroit only 7% of the eighth graders are grade-level proficient or better in reading

Detroit public-school eighth graders do even worse in math than they do in reading, according to the Department of Education. While only 7% scored highly enough on the department’s National Assessment of Educational Progress test in 2011 to be rated “proficient” or better in reading, only 4% scored highly enough to be rated “proficient” or better in math.
