Measuring the Diversity of U.S. School Districts

by Michael McLaughlin
More school districts were integrated in 2017 than 1995.

The Washington Post has released a series of data visualizations showing that U.S. schools have become increasingly diverse since 1995 but that many students in large cities and the South still live in heavily segregated school districts. The visualizations show that less than half of students went to school in a diverse district in 1995, compared to 66 percent in 2017. Nonetheless, nearly six million students are in districts where one race constitutes more than 75 percent of the student body. The visualizations include a map showing the diversity of each school district. 

Take a look.
