City students beat world in AP exam

More African-American seniors at Chicago's Whitney Young Magnet High School passed the college-level English Language Advanced Placement exam last year than at any other school in the world, public or private, officials said Wednesday.

The distinction is based on only 34 kids, exam officials said.

However, that was enough to beat similar selective-enrollment schools in New York City and Washington, D.C.
I think it's great, personally. I just think the article title is misleading.

There's a big difference between city students, but then basing this on only a sample of 34 students at one school. What about the rest of city students around the city in other similarly composed schools? Just wondering!
