AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Data shows that while Ohio schools are becoming more racially diversified, the numbers of minority teachers aren’t growing.

In 2006 a third of Ohio schoolchildren attended public schools with majority black or white enrollment.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported Sunday (https://bit.ly/1AoiVpD ) that number fell to 16 percent attending highly segregated traditional public schools or charter schools last year.

The paper says at the same time more than half of 356 districts and charter schools that enrolled black students last year didn’t employ a black teacher.

A Beacon Journal analysis of student enrollment data finds that multiracial children are the fastest-growing student population in Ohio behind Hispanics.
