A pro-charter school group has found that 90 New York City public schools failed to pass a single black or Hispanic student on state mathematics and reading tests this year.

The tests were based on the Common Core State Standards.

Families of Excellent Schools says black and Hispanic students scored better on the 2014 exams compared with a year earlier. But it says the achievement gap still worsened because white and Asian students scored higher increases.
