Austin students are outscoring their Dallas and Houston counterparts in national reading and math tests.

All three Texas school districts were part of a national review released Wednesday.

Samples of eighth- and fourth-grade students in 21 school districts in the nation's largest cities were tested in reading and math. The report is part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress.

The report shows Texas' urban schools mostly track a national urban-school trend: they're behind the rest of the nation.

Austin students, however, generally scored higher than other urban districts and schools nationally.

The lowest average scores in Texas were in Dallas in both reading and math.
