The Mind-blowing Gap Between Connecticut’s Richest & Poorest School Districts
Well this is interesting.
We always knew this state was divided up between extremely wealthy and extremely poor towns. But when you take a look at this map of school districts it is even more fascinating.
There are 9 color coded DRG (District Reference Groups) on the map. DRG A is basically all communities with more millionaire family households than non-millionaire. The map goes from there down to DRG I, which is family households whose students are near 100% below the poverty line. The gaps between the groups is crazy. It’s hard to even find a DRG I or H anywhere near a DRG A.
