INEQUALITY IN EDUCATION: IT’S A NATIONAL PHENOMENON

Expansive Survey of America's Public Schools Reveals Troubling Raci...

The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released today the first comprehensive look at civil rights data from every public school in the country in nearly 15 years.

Among the key findings are some really disturbing facts:

¨      Access to preschool: About 40% of public school districts do not offer preschool, and where it is available, it is mostly part-day only. Of the school districts that operate public preschool programs, barely half are available to all students within the district.

¨      Suspension of preschool children: Black students represent 18% of preschool enrollment but 42% of students suspended once, and 48% of the students suspended more than once.

¨      Access to advanced courses: Eighty-one percent (81%) of Asian-American high school students and 71% of white high school students attend high schools where the full range of math and science courses are offered (Algebra I, geometry, Algebra II, calculus, biology, chemistry, physics).

¨      Access to college counselors: Nationwide, one in five high schools lacks a school counselor; in Florida and Minnesota, more than two in five students lack access to a school counselor.

¨      Retention of English learners in high school: English learners make up 5% of high school enrollment but 11% of high school students held back each year.

¨     State-, district- and school-level data may be viewed at the CRDC website at crdc.ed.gov. For more information on the work of the Office for Civil Rights, click here.
