By the Numbers: D.C. Schools
A new report on DC. public schools underscores the lack of racial diversity in the system, finding that more than 200 of the 234 public and charter schools are more than 90 percent African American or Hispanic. Seven of the schools are majority white. The report, by researchers at the Brookings Institution, the Urban Institute and the 21st Century Fund, was welcomed by school officials as the first reliable information about the basic demographics of the student population in the city's public and charter schools.
As part of an in-depth examination of D.C. public schools last year, The Post compiled an on-line database, where school-by-school information is available on subjects ranging from academic performance to the condition of buildings.
