As we approach fall, your thoughts might be turning to sending your kids to school. Any white kids going to be there? Probably not.
What percentage of students in the New York City public school system would you guess are white? How about in L.A. or Chicago? The numbers are 15% for New York, 10% for L.A., and less than 10% for Chicago. In Detroit less than 4% of public school students are white. Also less than 4% in New Orleans.
In the nation’s capitol? 4.5%. Even in Boston – not an area normally associated with overwhelming racial diversity – less than 15% of public school students are white.
Remember hearing that, one day in the future, white people would be a minority in the United States? If you look at the public schools, you’ll see that day is already here. Visit this site to see all the numbers.
