In Case You Missed It: Most + Least Diverse High Schools in RI
Saturday, February 23, 2013
GoLocalProv's first-ever ranking of every public and charter high school in Rhode Island created a stir. Rhode Island Department of Education Commission Deborah Gist, Urban League President Dennis Langley, NAACP/Providence President Jim Vincent, and other education experts provide context for what diversity does--and doesn't--look like in Rhode Island's high schools.
What are Rhode Island's most--and least--diverse high schools? GoLocal's new ranking utilized data filed by each school with the Institute for Education Science's National Center for Education Statistics to assess each RI public and charter high school's overall racial balance. The more balanced a school's enrollment was across all race categories as named by the NCES, the higher it ranked. See every RI school with its percentages and overall rankings.
Compare each and every public and charter high school's racial percentages and how they ranked on diversity statewide, in GoLocal's chart.
The results of GoLocalProv's rankings sparked a wave of reaction from school officials from across the state. See how #1 Most Diverse Classical High responded, as well as schools like Ponaganset and Scituate High.
