LeRoy Collins Institute Releases Report on Resegregation of Florida Schools

Florida K-12 schools have the most diverse student body in our state’s history, yet the percentage of highly segregated schools doubled over the past two decades.

That’s just one of the troubling trends in the LeRoy Collins Institute’s latest report, which analyzed enrollment changes and segregation trends in Florida public schools and charter schools. The report, issued 60 years after former Gov. LeRoy Collins spoke out against segregation, also found double segregation is increasing in Florida, meaning many students are segregated by both race and poverty.

We hope this report encourages additional dialogue about equal access to quality education.

Dr. Carol Weissert, LeRoy Collins Institute
