According to a U.S. Department of Education survey somewhere between seven and 35 Black high school students took calculus in Oregon schools during the 2009-2010 school year.

These startling low numbers and other statistics are prompting district leaders to acknowledge and reevaluate ways to reverse the inferior educational outcomes of African Americans in the state.

Four of the seven high schools that had at least one African American student take calculus were in Portland, Benson, Madison, Roosevelt and Wilson, the education department reported. The three others were Centennial High, Churchill High in Eugene and Willamette High in the Bethel school district.
