Hispanic students are struggling to catch up to their white counterparts in reading and math proficiency, and Hispanic students in the District of Columbia suffer from the largest performance gap in the nation, according to a major new study being released Thursday.
California Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakso said the "long-standing achievement gap is a matter of deep concern," and remains a top priority for the state.
"We also are moving quickly to reexamine our efforts to make sure these students succeed, including playing a more active role in the development of the next generation of assessments for students learning English," he said in a statement.
