The average white child in America attends a school that is 77% white, and where just 32% of the student body lives in poverty

The average black child attends a school that is 59% poor but only 29% white. The typical Latino kid is similarly segregated; his school is 57% poor and 27% white. Overall, a third of all black and Latino children sit every day in classrooms that are 90% - 100% black and Latino.
