*Income of African Americans compared to that of Whites came to just below 60 percent ($35,400/$61,200).  Their wealth ratio is a lowly 10 percent ($17,600/$171,000) in comparison to Whites.  The ratios for Hispanics were very similar .   Source- Washington Post Article 2017

**Average test scores of black students are about two grade levels lower than those of white students in the same district.  The Hispanic-white difference is roughly one- and-a-half grade levels.  The disparity has little connection with class size, a district’s per capita student spending or charter school enrollment.   Research Data from Stanford University
