Spotlight On Outperforming Urban Schools

LOS ANGELES -  A new data analysis, based on data collected as part of The Broad Prize process, provides insights into which large urban school districts in the United States are doing the best job of educating traditionally disadvantaged groups: AfricanAmerican, Hispanics, and low-income students.


Since 2002, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation has awarded The Broad Prize to the large urban school district that has made the most progress nationwide in raising student achievement, narrowing achievement gaps between income and ethnic groups, and improving college readiness.


The independent review board and jury that select the Broad Prize finalists and winner each year rely on extensive data collection and analysis of academic performance levels and improvement rates in the nation’s 100 largest urban school districts. That data analysis includes state assessment data, college readiness indicators (e.g., Advanced Placement, SAT, and ACT), graduation rates, and Adequate Yearly Progress.

This brief is the first to hone in on data collected during The Broad Prize process in order to report which of the 100 Broad Prize-eligible school districts are performing better than their state averages in serving income and ethnic subgroups.


The 30 districts identified in this brief rose to the top through a special analysis of 2009 state reading and mathematics assessment data collected during the 2010 Broad Prize process. Half of these school districts are in Texas or California. In all, cities in 11 states and the District of Columbia were found to be outperforming their state averages in subgroup achievement.
