Report: In racially-diverse suburbs, charter schools getting whiter

by Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio


ST. PAUL, Minn. — A growing number of charter schools with mostly white students are opening in racially diverse Twin Cities suburbs, according to a new University of Minnesota report.
"In many of the first and second ring suburbs where the schools have become more diverse you have a disproportionate number of very white charter schools," said the report's author Myron Orfield.
The report says that since 2008 there's been a 40 percent increase in charters that serve mostly white students in first and second ring suburbs. It also shows charters overall continue to under-perform other public schools and are becoming increasingly segregated by race. Similar results were found in
