The New York state has the most segregated public schools in the United States, with many black and Latino students attending schools with virtually no white classmates, according to a new report

The report, released Wednesday by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, found that almost 30 percent of the state’s schools had fewer than 10 percent white students, and 11 percent of the schools had fewer than 1 in 100 white students.

In New York City, the largest school system in the US with 1.1 million students, many of the charter schools created over the last decade are among the least diverse of all, with less than 1 percent white enrollment at 73 percent of the charter schools.

The researchers said segregation has the effect of concentrating black and Latino students in schools with a high rate of poor students compared with the statewide average.'

Other states with highly segregated schools include Illinois, Michigan and California, according to the study.

Aren't those all liberal progressive states?
