Coming Tuesday: The Most and Least Diverse High Schools In RI

Saturday, February 16, 2013

 

What are Rhode Island's most--and least--diverse high schools?

Which Rhode Island high schools are truly the most --and least--diverse? GoLocal's latest ranking has the answer.

GoLocal's new ranking, which will be be released on Tuesday, February 19th has the answer.

From the urban high schools of Providence, Pawtucket and Woonsocket to the rural high schools in South County; from Cranston, Warwick and Newport to Little Compton--from public high schools to charters and magnet schools, GoLocal has crunched all the latest enrollment data to reveal which high schools achieve the most racial and ethnic diversity. And which schools don't.

The numbers

GoLocal's researchers have assessed every Rhode Island high school's racial and ethnic breakdowns, and analyzed how well--or poorly--those percentages of enrollment compare to an ideal diversity of student population. You'll see how every school performed and ranked, and be able to compare percentages among all of the state's public and charter high schools. You'll also hear from administrators and educators at both ends of the list addressing how they handle diversity at their schools, and what it means to their students. 

Who lands at the top, and who is at the bottom? You may be surprised at what the numbers reveal. Don't miss GoLocal's latest look at Rhode Island's high schools. 

How did your school do?

Coming Tuesday.

HERE'S A HINT TO THE ARTICLE WRITER- LITTLE COMPTON DOES NOT HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL (AS IMPLIED IN THE ABOVE TEASER COPY) NICE WORK GOLOCAL

Let me guess, East Greenwich mostly white, CF mostly minority. Why don't your "NEWS TEAM" look into why the white schools do so well and the non white schools do poorly. It must be the teachers right? The union right? I think the fact that RI is so small we can figure out the population base without this explosive article.

Hopefully the crackerjack "news staff" will have the numbers on enrollment from neighboring communities.

such as, the number of Providence residences that go to school in NP, Johnston and Cranston.

After all, if you're going to write an article, and promote it ahead of time, getting the facts straight should be priority #1.
