Data from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools show a lower enrollment of Black and Hispanic students in advanced courses and college-level courses. Some students say they wish to see more self-representation in these classes. CMS reports show that 20% of Black students and 20% of Hispanic students with weighted GPAs over 3.0 have never taken an advanced course whereas only 8% of Asian students and 9% of white students have not. Students are encouraging one another to take advanced courses and fill more classes with diversity. Read the full story here.
