Am I missing something here?
M-A and Woodside show a huge disparity between White and Hispanic scores, while Summit's delta between White and Hispanic scores is significantly smaller. Seems Summit is really doing right by all their students.
And, while I did take algebra, geometry and calculus at M-A years ago, I can't seem to calculate a total API for M-A and Woodside (I see Summit's total was not omitted from the article). Can someone help me? Summit students?
