Re: “Genesee in unchartered territory

This article says the city's student population is 90 percent African American and Latino. I believe what the author meant to say is that the population of students attending Rochester City School District schools is 90 percent African American and Latino. When you count in all the students who live in the district but don't attend RCSD schools, the percentage of minorities and people receiving free and reduced lunches drop. Please use accurate statistics.
Further, the insinuation ("The school is often accused of cherry-picking students...") that the school is selective is simply wrong because admission is by lottery. If you want to see an example of cherry picking, that would be a school that makes students to jump through hoops to get in -- say, one that requires parents to request an audition and then have a child create a portfolio of work and go through a three-hour audition. And that would be RCSD's School of the Arts, another model that works pretty well because the selection process ensures parents are engaged in the attending the school.
