New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
This document is a collection of racial/ethnic data on the school population of New York State for 1984-1985. Such data have been collected annually since 1966 and are part of the State Department of Education's Basic Educational Data System. Table 1 gives racial/ethnic student distribution in the State's five major school districts (Buffalo, New York City, Rochester, Syracuse, and Yonkers), for the rest of the State, and for the State as a whole. Table 2 presents the distribution of Black and Hispanic students by location in the State. It shows that 70.6% of all Black students and 86.5% of Hispanic students attend school in New York City. Table 3 shows a percent distribution of students by racial/ethnic origin for the years 1980-81 through 1984-85. In the large cities, the minority group population rose from 66.5% to 69.1%, with an even larger increase in Yonkers. Table 4 details the number of schools and the number and percent of minority students in schools of differing racial composition, and finds among other things, that 77.6% of Black and Hispanic students attend a minority school. Tables 5 and 6 present data on numbers and percents of Black and Hispanic students, respectively, in schools of differing racial composition. Tables 7 and 8 show the distribution of professional school staff by racial/ethnic origin, with current year data in Table 7 and trend data in Table 8. The document includes appendices which detail the distribution of public school students by racial/ethnic origin for each school district in the State, and distribution of school professional staff by racial/ethnic origin for each school district. Data are included for Native Americans, Alaskan natives, Asians, and Pacific Islanders, as well as Blacks, Hispanics, and Whites (non-Hispanics). (CG)
