Re: “Demographics are destiny, eStem charter school leader says. No kidding.

Can someone show a "Compare and contrast:" with the expensive Private Schools?

"* According to the most recent state figures, eStem's black enrollment was 682 of 1,462 students, or 46 percent The Little Rock School District counted 14,603 black students among 22,759, or 64 percent."
Private Schools Combined is?

"* How about the more critical economic factor, as measured by the number of students qualifying for free and reduced price lunches. At eStem the percentage was 30.4 percent. In the Little Rock School District, it was 70.8 percent."
Private Schools Combined is?

Re: “Demographics are destiny, eStem charter school leader says. No kidding.

Last I counted there are 9 Charter Schools in Little Rock not affiliated with LRSD. Notice the neighborhoods these Charter Schools Serve. How can only one be the problem. By the way that One that seems to be the problem pulls from 16 school districts including No. Little Rock, Pulaski Co., Benton, Bryant, Jacksonville, and Maumelle which have no bearing on LRSD enrollment. Could it be that parents who work downtown and reside outside of Little Rock want their children close in case of emergencies, or have other considerations? Should they not have the right to choose where their child is?
