Kalamazoo Promise Usage by Race

Another interesting bit of data from the Kalamazoo Promise administrator Bob Jorth. Eligible African-American graduates of KPS are using the Kalamazoo Promise at approximately the same rate as eligible Caucasian students:

  2006 2007 2008 2009
% eligible h.s. graduates who have used Promise 83 84 85 74
% of eligible African-Americans who have used Promise 83 81 85 73
% of eligible Caucasians who have used Promise 86 86 85 77

More complete demographic data is available on the website of the Upjohn Institute http://upjohn.org/promise/index.htm Later this year we will have our first data examining the proportion of students using the Kalamazoo Promise who were classified as economically disadvantaged (i.e., eligible for free or reduced-price school meals) during their time in KPS.
