New Orleans Schools 2013-14

Public schools in New Orleans have different racial and ethnic composition from the city ’s total population. Using 2012 U.S. Census population demographics as a reference, we categorized schools based on how closely their populations mirror that of New Orleans. We grouped the schools into the categories that can be found in the map legend. The map below illustrates, by location, to which group each school was assigned.  Screen Shot 2014-06-11 at 11.11.14 AM

Only four schools in the city fell into the “Representative of NOLA” sample (Audubon Charter School, Homer A. Plessy Community School, Morris Jeff Community School, and New Orleans Military/Maritime Academy) category and two were in the “Representative of NOLA Youth” (Encore Academy and New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics HS) category.
