Statewide Trends of Lost Instruction Rates for Homeless Youth, by Race/Ethnicity
Press Release New Data show CA school administrators dramatically increased disciplinary exclusion of homeless youth to highest rate in 6 years
Research does not support the long-standing practice of kicking students out of school for minor misconduct. Unfortunately, after years of declining rates, new data in this update to the Lost Instruction Report -- released in Oct. 2023 — shows that school administrators are increasingly denying students who are homeless access to school.
Press Release New report details extensive segregation in suburban schools of largest U.S. metros amid policy vacuum
Almost one-third (30%) of students in public schools in the United States are enrolled in suburban schools in the nation’s largest 25 metro areas, where two-thirds of metro children are being educated. According to a new study by the Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles, these suburban schools are experiencing a substantial proliferation of school segregation, underscoring an urgent need for a civil rights agenda that addresses the challenges to educational opportunity and lasting integration.
Press Release New Report Describes Developmental Education, Reform Efforts and Implementation in CA Community Colleges
This new CRP paper honors the memory of CRP collaborator Tatiana Melguizo and her vision of greater equity for students of color, low-income students and English learners, who often reach higher education underprepared for the courses they need to take to progress toward their degrees. We hope that the account presented here is useful to community college educators across the nation.
Press Release UCLA Civil Rights Project Assesses School Segregation 70 Years After Brown
Brown v. Board of Education was a turning point in American law and race relations. In a country where segregated education was the law in seventeen states with completely separate and unequal schools, Brown found that segregation was “inherently unequal” and violated the Constitution. A new report published today by the UCLA Civil Rights Project, The Unfinished Battle for Integration in a Multiracial America – from Brown to Now, discusses the present realities of school segregation and the patterns of change over 70 years.
Press Release New research reveals U.S. charter schools exhibit higher racial segregation compared to magnet schools in same districts
New research from the UCLA Civil Rights Project finds that the fast-growing charter sector is associated with more segregation than the magnet sector. The report examines schools in a sample of more than 100 districts that hosted at least five charter schools and five magnet schools in any year since 2000. This sample is key for evaluating choice policies and for enabling comparisons of locations where policymakers decided to implement both school choice models.
Press Release New CRP Report Shows North Carolina Schools Losing Hard-Earned Progress on Integration
North Carolina’s public school enrollment has become increasingly racially diverse, with White students now accounting for less than half of the state’s enrollment, yet schools across the state have become more segregated. The state was once a trailblazer in school desegregation, but 1 in 4 Black students and nearly 1 in 5 Hispanic students now attend an intensely segregated school of color in North Carolina.
Press Release New Research on Teachers Highlights CA's Need to Recruit/Retain More Teachers of Color and Correct Unequal Distribution of Experienced Teachers
Two new studies of California teachers show we are far from reaching our goals of racial equality in the state. The first study uses a mix of qualitative and quantitative data collected over the course of one year from system leaders in teacher preparation, pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and former teachers to better understand current policies and practices that may be contributing to teacher burnout, turnover and early retirement of teachers of color and indigenous teachers. The second study is a policy brief that analyzes the most recent teacher experience and student race data available from the California Department of Education and shows that the inequitable distribution of experienced teachers in schools of differing racial compositions continues.
