The Road to Equity-Expanding AP Access and Success for African-American Students (national report)

In most school districts, as access to and participation in Advanced Placement exams have
gone up, the exam passing rates have gone down. But that isn’t always the case. The Eli and
Edythe Broad Foundation, looking to identify urban districts with promising trends in student
achievement and college-readiness, analyzed four years of AP exam participation and passing
rates for students in the 75 districts whose demographics qualify them for consideration
for the annual Broad Prize for Urban Education. It found six districts where African-American
students were improving their passing rates while keeping participation levels steady. This
report illustrates some of the promising practices contributing to AP success in these six districts.
