In a new report, the U.S. Education Department projected that this fall, the percentage of white students in public schools will drop from 51 percent in 2012 to 49.7. In other words: for the first time ever, the majority of students in the public school system will be children of color. The implications are tremendous. EURweb has the rest:

According to a new report by the National Center for Education (NCES), the racial landscape of students in the public school system is about to change. Minorities – namely, Hispanics, Asians, African Americans, Native Americans, and multiracial individuals will account for 50.3% of the public school student population. 51% of grade level pre-kindergarten to 8th grade will be minorities and they will make up 48% of 9th to 12th graders.

 

It appears the change in the enrollment is due to the percentage of US-born Hispanics and Asians in the overall population. Between 2012 and 2013, the Hispanic population grew by 2.1% and the Asian population grew by 2.9%. This will increase the number of Asian and Hispanic students attending public schools between 2011 and 2022. Hispanic students will rise by 33%, Asian/Pacific Islanders by 20%, multiracial students by 44%, and African-Americans by 2% between 2011 and 2022.

Meanwhile the percentage of Caucasians is projected to decrease by 6% and American Indian/Alaska Natives is expected to decrease by 5%.

The shift begs questions around how curriculum standards might change to better reflect the student population.

  1. And yet Democrats still want to flood the country with millions of non-English speaking minors that will over flow and over burden the learning process of American English speaking kids further diminishing their chances of a quality education.
    Look at how stressed school systems are along border areas

    Don’t let them lie to you. They come up with these stats to make us drop our Gaurd. Asians hate us more than whites do. They are both decendants to Neanderthals. And the Hispanics are fucking white. Why do they keep saying they are people of color. So false. They are whites who tan better than other whites. There is no difference between the two. It wasn’t that long ago when they were considered legally the same. Now all the sudden they are not. Do they think we are stupid.

  3. This explains why school funding is being cut in a lot of states, sub-standard non caring teachers, etc.

    Once schools were desegregated back in the day, this country had no intention of ever providing a decent education to our children!!!!—

    So, if parents can’t afford to send their kids to private or catholic schools, shame on them.

    So sad. No wonder so many of the foreign countries are way ahead of the education curve than Amerykah is.
