This is the student demographics for the Ron Clark Academy. One Hispanic student out of their entire student body. This is a non profit school that is funded by a diverse group of sponsors and donors. They have received hundreds of application from qualified Hispanic students during their years in operation and yet they currently only have one Hispanic student. I'll be looking into this. All kids deserves a FAIR chance to be part of this school. This is just wrong!
