Report Finds Poor, Minority Students Have Fewer Educational Opportunities

Beth Fertig writes at the New York Times (4/18, Subscription Publication) "SchoolBook" blog about a new report from the Schott Foundation for Public Education which "looked at the educational opportunities available to poor and minority students and found the choices lacking." The report "found that poor and minority students have fewer opportunities to attend the city's best public schools largely because of where they live." Fertig describes the study's methodology, and notes that it "found that wealthier neighborhoods have more access to better schools."
