Many schools across the country are becoming racially resegregated, says a new Harvard University report that reinforces earlier Harvard studies on the trend.

“Racial Transformation and the Changing Nature of Segregation” is available from Harvard University’s Civil Rights Project.

Compared with a decade ago, more black students—especially in the South and some Mid-Atlantic states—are attending majority-nonwhite schools, the report by the university’s Civil Rights Project says. For example, between 1991 and 2003, the percentage of black students in the South attending majority-nonwhite schools rose from 61 percent to 71 percent.

The report also notes that Latinos tend to be segregated in the West, where 81 percent of Latino students are in schools with nonwhite majorities.
