Just 10% of Washington DC students who took a new standardized Geometry test and 25% of students who took a new high school English test met proficiency standards designed to reflect whether they are on track to enter college or begin careers after graduation

Results also show a stark achievement gap, with 52% of white students scoring proficient or better on the Geometry test, compared to 8% of Hispanic students and 4% of black students. Eighty-two percent of white students met the college-ready target in English, compared to 25% of Hispanic students and 20% of black students.
