Three Important Details When Discussing School Segregation


Good clarifying post. Also of interest is "segregation within nominally integrated schools." Example: Cambridge Rindge and Latin is very roughly 1/3 African-American, 1/3 white, the rest split b/w Asian and Hispanic. Yet white and Asian students go to 4-year colleges at roughly twice the rate as Hispanic and African-American students....and the division in AP and honors classes is even starker.
