RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's an SAT controversy in Richmond. A local delegate is accusing the City school system of manipulating the numbers by using test scores from a school that's not actually in its district.
A spokesperson for the school system says it has nothing to hide and has done nothing wrong. but Delegate Joe Morrissey held a press conference this morning, he says to point out to parents that Richmond SAT scores are not as high as they look.
It's all in the numbers when it comes to SATs. Students have to take the test to get into college and school systems use it as a benchmark.
On the Richmond Public Schools website there's a list of its students average SAT scores.
"They've use a total score of 954. that's not accurate, it's not true, it's misleading. it's disingenuous," said Delegate Joe Morrissey.
