New York’s Schools Are the Country’s Most Racially Segregated

The majority of Black students in NYC attend racially and financially segregated schools.

A new study from the UCLA's Civil Rights Project, which tracked enrollment numbers from 1989 to 2010, shows that New York state's public schools are the most racially segregated in the United States, with many Black and Latino students going to class with "virtually no" White classmates.

Here's the breakdown from the Associated Press: "About half of the state's public school students were from low-income families in 2010 … but the typical Black or Latino student attended a school where close to 70 percent of classmates were low-income. The typical White student went to a school where just 30 percent of classmates were low-income."
