Hispanics, Blacks, and Asians added to “Melting Pot,” but it’s not being Stirred
Despite the sharp rise in the racial and ethnic diversity of suburban district enrollments overall, there has been only a modest increase in the racial and ethnic diversity of student populations at the level of the individual suburban school according to the study.
So, who’s the fast growing minority? Of course, los Latinos! They have nearly doubled their share of suburban school district enrollment-to 20% in 2006-07, from 11% in 1993-94.
Suburban Hispanic students are increasingly attending schools whose student bodies have a high percentage of Hispanics. In 2006-07, the typical suburban Hispanic student attended a school that was 49% Latino, up from 42% Latino in 1993-94. By contrast, there was little change during this period in the levels of racial isolation of black and Asian suburban students. In 2006-07.
