CHART: The Most and Least Diverse High Schools in RI

Saturday, June 01, 2013

See how Rhode Island's most--and least--diverse schools stack up against each other in GoLocal's first-ever ranking. Utilizing data filed by each school with the Institute for Education Science's National Center for Education Statistics, GoLocal researchers assessed each RI public and charter high school's overall racial balance (for more on the methodology, go here.) The more balanced a school's enrollment was across all race categories as named by the NCES, the higher it ranked. Voluntary reporting by RI's private and parochial schools was not complete enough to compile a valid ranking. Learn more about which schools reported and which did not, here.

Data is the most recent available from the CES's current data bases, and includes data from school years 2010-2011 and 2011-2012.

just as i suspected. nowhere does it indicate how many people live in one city (such as central falls or providence) and go to a neighboring town (such as johnston, np or cranston).

report just what you want, in order to make a good headline.

In the schools where whites are the minority are special programs being introduced so they don't feel left out? Any special caucasian club, Northern European History Month or classes particular to the lighter race?

So, unless you are in Providence, your high school population reflects your community.
This is news?
Are there any charts that would dispute that?
That would be news.
