Report: Rust Belt, Deep South home to most economically segregated school Districts
from U.S. News & World Report
The 50 most economically segregated school district borders in the country – borders that isolate communities with high rates of poverty from their wealthier neighbors – are clustered in just 13 states concentrated in the Rust Belt and Deep South swaths of the U.S. The findings are part of an update to EdBuild's "Fault Lines" report, published three years ago, which measures economic segregation along school district borders by comparing the proportion of school-aged children in the districts on either side who live below the poverty line.
