New Georgia analysis: see which Gwinnett schools ‘beat the odds’


new analysis of performance with at-risk student groups shows Gwinnett County with a relatively high percentage of schools that “beat the odds.”

The annual statistical analysis by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement compares schools’ ability to teach based on student characteristics that are “outside the school’s control.” Race, ethnicity, disabilities, English fluency, economic “disadvantage” and transience were considered in Thursday’s report for 2017.

Typically, 40 percent of schools beat the odds. In Gwinnett, 64 percent of district schools did, as did all three measured schools in Buford, according to a review by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. (The analysis didn’t look at Buford Elementary, which goes only to first grade.)
