what I do all day...

Just in case you were ever curious about what I really do at work, here's the link to the report we've been working on since I started. It examines the performance of Hispanic and White students on NAEP (a national standardized test) at the national and state levels, specifically focusing on the achievement gaps between those two groups and various subgroups. 

It's also gone viral and several news outlets have picked up the story (if you want a short and sweet version of the 90+ page report, I'd recommend skimming the news articles...or reading the executive summary of the report):

Reuters: Hispanic-white achievement gap still wide in education 

The Washington Times: D.C. Hispanics trail U.S. peers in math, reading

Education Week: Study Finds Gaps Remain Large for Hispanic Students

Salt Lake Tribune: Utah school achievement racial gap one of highest 

Hope you all have a great weekend. and a big thanks again for keeping Ryan in mind this week...I'm sure we'll have updates later on how it all went.
