Congratulations to the teachers, administrators and, above all, the students in the Los Angeles Unified School District for continued improvement on the California High School Exit Exam. The achievement should have been noted on the front page of The Times.
The improvement for Latino and African American students is particularly noteworthy. So often many of those students have wonderful parents who have less than a high school education and earn less than parents of white middle-class parents. Latino and African American students must be seeing the advantage of a high school diploma and how more education will lead to a better life.
Keep it up, students. You are getting there.
