Patch: No District 28 Schools Represent Local Diversity, New Study Finds


January 8, 2020


“FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — Zero schools in District 28 are representative of the local population, a sobering new data analysis has found.

None of the 55 public schools studied were representative of ethnic and racial diversity in the district, which stretches from Forest Hills to Jamaica, according to an analysis of 2018-2019 school enrollment and demographic data by the Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York, a nonprofit advocacy organization.”
