EMUHSD Student Addresses Achievement Gap in Advanced Placement Program
At our Board of Trustees Meeting held on March 16, our Student Board Member, Xitlalic Palacios, a senior at Rosemead High School, presented the Board of Trustees with a recent article she wrote titled, “The Achievement Gap at RHS: Are We, as a School Community, Doing Enough?”. Xitlalic is the Editor-in-Chief for “The Panther Post”, the school’s newspaper, where the article was recently featured. Xitlalic writes about her personal experiences with the school’s Advanced Placement (AP) program to raise awareness of the underrepresentation of Hispanic students enrolled in the majority of AP courses offered when compared to Asian American students.
