slides: The Most and Least Diverse High Schools in Rhode Island

Saturday, June 01, 2013

 

What are Rhode Island's most--and least--diverse high schools? GoLocal's new ranking has the answer.

Diversity continues to be one of education's most talked-about topics--how well are high school students prepared for a complex, racially and ethnically diverse society? How diverse, really, are the hallways and classrooms of each public and charter high school in the state?

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. 

How did your school do?
