The Maryland State’s Department of Education has recently published the student report cards for all of our State schools.
Though not surprising, one striking trend in the report card is the student demographics of the Hollywood Elementary school, the only public elementary school in our district. Over the past 10 years (from 2000 to 2010), the Hispanic student enrollment has gone up from 35 to 235, while the white student enrollment has gone down from 172 to 73. The student population of African American origin has also taken a hit during this period (from 198 to 88), the Asian population has made a modest gain (from 26 to 43).
See the detailed statistics below.
This change in student demograpics may also reflect a similar trend in area’s overall population – we’ll have to wait for the 2010 census report to find more about that.
