Note: Poverty is measured as the percent of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. High-poverty districts are those where the poverty level exceeds the national average of 38.7 percent. Racial segregation is measured by an indicator that reflects the extent to which members of racial and ethnic minority groups attend school in isolation from their white, non-Hispanic peers. In a district with a high level of racial segregation, minority children are twice as likely to attend school with other minority students than with whites. Levels of economic segregation are measured in a similar manner, using eligibility for free or reduced-price lunch as a proxy for poverty. Information about district characteristics was obtained from the U.S. Department of Education’s Common Core of Data.
