Which students get into advanced math? Texas is using test scores to limit bias

  • A new Texas law automatically enrolls the top 40% of fifth-grade math students in advanced math for sixth grade, aiming to address the inequality in access to advanced courses for Black and Hispanic students.
  • Students who take advanced math in sixth grade have better opportunities to pursue STEM majors in college and high-paying careers. The law hopes to prepare a diverse workforce by focusing on math education.
  • While the law has led to increased enrollment and diversity in advanced math classes, some challenges remain, such as the need for more qualified math teachers and additional tutoring.
