Segregation in the New York City Public School System

This one’s a work in progress that was done for a Bronx City Council member who was interested in school segregation. We opted to re-do this one entirely to include 2017 data as well since that was made available shortly after we completed this one.

New York City Public Schools are, broadly speaking, quite segregated and look very unlike their neighborhoods. The demographics of the kids that attend public school in New York City is generally unlike the demographics of the kids in each community district. Where is this sort of inequality the most blatant? We looked at data from NYSED. The more relevant data excludes high schools because of the nature of high schools in New York City.
