How the nation’s growing racial diversity is changing our schools

September 17, 2019

More students attend schools with children of different races than ever before, a Washington Post analysis has found. Over the past couple of decades, integration took hold across the country in smaller school districts whose student bodies had been predominantly white.

But in many big cities and across the South, students remain in districts that are deeply segregated.

This comes as the nation reaches a demographic tipping point: In 2020, there will be more children of color than white children in America, according to Census Bureau projections.
