    9. UCLA/IDEA A “good” school? no relative advantage

    10. UCLA/IDEA Data: “hard evidence” of improvement More Latinos and African Americans participating in student government; More taking more rigorous curricula, More getting good grades; More applying for and enrolling in four-year universities. White and Asian students continued to thrive “Actual people” solved “real problems” once they had the data to see them. None of this would be legal under Proposition 54.

    26. UCLA/IDEA The bottom lines: Solid social science analyses—with no data off limits—counters the cultural temptation is to blame “those kids,” “those families,” and “those people” for schooling problems It also counters the denial of well-intentioned educators enacting institutional racism Our first line of defense is valid and credible evidence—evidence that allows us to see “actual people” and “real problems.”
