Ore. Elementary Charters Found Lacking in Diversity
The six least-diverse Oregon elementary schools all are charter schools, according to a new state education department analysis. They have the fewest low-income students, students who speak English as a second language, and students who are black, Latino, Pacific Islander, or Native American.
Four of those six schools registered top-tier performance on this year's school report cards.
Rather than being assigned to a charter school based on where they live, families have to apply, be admitted by lottery if there are too many applicants, and provide their own transportation to the school.
