“How Segregated Are Michigan’s Schools? Changes in Enrollment From 1992-93 to 2004-05" is available from the Education Policy Center at Michigan State University.

More than 60 percent of Michigan’s African-American K-12 students attend schools in which more than 80 percent of the students are black, concludes a report from the Education Policy Center at Michigan State University.

The report examines changes in the distribution of black students across the state’s public schools between 1992 and 2005, the period that saw the start of both charter schools and public-school-choice plans, it notes. The study found that the percentage of schools it deems racially segregated increased from 9 percent to more than 11 percent over that period, owing largely, it says, to the growth of charter schools. More than three-quarters of the black students who attend charter schools, it found, go to schools in which more than 80 percent of the students are African-American.
