Chicago Ranks Right Where It Should (Right?)

Chicago Ranks Right Where It Should (Right?)

The Hechinger Report's Jill Barshay notes that some big cities did better than others despite student poverty on the just-released test results showing how urban school districts compare to each other and to statewide averages. Generally, poverty and score rankings matched up. Chicago ranks 13th out of the 21 cities in its 4th grade math scores, and 13th in terms of its poverty ranking.  But some did worse than might otherwise be expected, and others did much better. Boston did better than its poverty ranking, and DC and Atlanta and Jefferson County (KY) did worse.  Read the full post here: Some poor cities do surprisingly well.  What do you think?  Is it fair to compare cities much smaller like Boston to cities much bigger like CPS?
