Dear Department for Education,
I read with interest your report "PISA 2018: national report for England"
I am working on a meta-analysis of ethnic differences in various countries. For this, I would like, if possible, the 2018 PISA science, math, and reading scores, with standard deviations and sample sizes, broken down by fine ethnicity (e.g., "Black-Caribbean," not just "Black").
Thank you for the help.
