The 2019 Assessment of Educational Progress, Grade 8 Reading Results uses charts that pit Whites against Hispanics and Blacks. They forget to mention Asians scored the highest and ELL (or English Language Learners) scored the lowest.

PBC pushes a 99.4% graduation rate, but our US News & World Report scores had the county high schoolers at a college ready index of 28 out of 100, with a 53% reading proficiency and a Math proficiency of 47%.
