I finally finished writing up my guided project Analyzing NYC high school data. Among the things I found: a proxy for socioeconomic status, the percentage of students receiving subsidized school lunch had a strong inverse correlation with a school’s average SAT scores. The magnitude was greater than any other correlation, positive or negative. This also has implications for differences in SAT scores in relationship to the racial make-up of schools.
I appreciate any feedback, but particularly on my discussion of the analysis.
