1)  ANSWER: Answer should reflect that racial discrimination may play a role but that achievement gap (the difference in performance on standardized tests between white and minority students) may also be at work. Because black and Hispanic students are more likely to score below passing on standardized tests, they are therefore more likely to be referred for special education consideration. Clearly, there is an overall failing within schools to adequately address the educational needs of diverse students.
