Race to the Top? Critic says Education Plan Takes Advantage of Public School and State 'Desperation'

Beth Hawkins

Charter schools are more racially isolated
than traditional schools in virtually every state and large city in the
country, according to a new report released by the University of
California at Los Angeles. In the Midwest, more than half of charter
students in 2007-2008 were black, in large part because charters are
most often located in urban settings, researchers at UCLA's Civil
Rights Project found.
