I think Wallethub is a ridiculous website. But I get a kick out of the fact that some of North Carolina’s “least equitable” districts are in our state’s most progressive counties, while a number of the “most equitable” districts are in conservative counties.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is #95 on the list, which puts it in the neighborhood of a “least equitable” district.
|Most Equitable||Least Equitable|

|2. Warren County Schools||107. Durham Public Schools|
|3. Elkin City Schools||108. Lexington City Schools|
