Charts: Small Gains, "Hope For What Else Is Possible"

image from www.edcentral.org

Thanks to EdCentral for pulling out a few charts including this one that reminds us that things are slowly but surely (?) getting better in education (The Condition of Education): "Across all reported races and ethnicities, scores on the reading and math sections of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) have increased since 1990. While there is still much room to improve, these small gains warrant some congratulations—and they give hope for what else is possible."

"Small" gains? That's 24-26pts for all three subgroups in a single generation.
