Horry County, Texas, is known as the county where the Civil War broke out.
A few decades ago, a school named for a Confederate soldier was also named after a slave owner.
But today, the school is a school of science and technology.
As a result, the county is home to a large percentage of students with black and Hispanic names, and the school’s racial makeup is nearly half African American and half Hispanic.
In a report released last week, the Human Rights Campaign found that Horry has more than 1,200 schools with a majority of their students identifying as white, according to a map provided by the county’s schools board.
But the report also highlighted that the school district has a much higher number of white students than its white population.
The report looked at the number of students who identify as white and Asian and their race/ethnicity in the county as well as the percentage of their classmates who are white, Asian or black.
The district has more white students and Asian students than the total population, according the report, which was released in response to a lawsuit filed against the district by the family of a deceased student.
In 2015, the district was ranked #2 on the list of top school districts in the country for the percentage-white percentage of its students.
The report said that Hagan, which is about 45 minutes northwest of Horry, has an 85 percent white population and only 6 percent Asian students.
“The number of black and Asian children is more than twice the white students,” said Laura J. Ritchie, executive director of the Human Right Campaign, which filed the lawsuit.
“We’ve got to do better to educate our students and create an inclusive environment in which everyone is welcomed.”
In 2015 the Human Resources Administration reported that about 5,700 Hagan students are in special education, and Hagan is a small school.
But Ritchie said the number could be even higher because the district is a magnet school, meaning that the students who attend the district’s schools are not typically placed in the same grade level as the students in the larger district.
Ritchie said that the Hagan school district is trying to get students into special education by increasing enrollment in the school system, as well, but said that many students have limited or no access to special education services.
In addition, Hagan has had a long history of racial inequity, Ritchie added.
The county is one of the few places in the United States where African Americans are much less likely to have access to public schools, and Ritchie noted that the county has had issues with segregation for a long time.
According to a 2016 study from the University of North Texas, the racial disparity is even larger in the Hidalgo County school system than it is in the district where the incident occurred.
A 2014 survey of Hidalgon County students by the Human Resource Services Office of the Chief Education Officer found that the majority of students at the district had one or more disabilities, and that many of them were not proficient in reading and math.
The same report said the district has had problems with student behavior in recent years, such as the death of a student who was not able to complete schoolwork.
In March, the Department of Education reported that the number and race of students in Hidalguan had declined from the 2015-16 school year to the 2016-17 school year.
The Hidalgos also have a long, history of having a history of high rates of student suspension and expulsion, according and the Human Education and Access Education Project, which works to improve the educational opportunities for all students.
The Human Rights Center, a nonprofit organization that advocates for racial justice, said that schools in the region need to get better at identifying and addressing the problem.
Students and staff should be given the tools to identify when students are experiencing distress and can be coached to engage in support groups, said Amy Ritchie-Powers, director of HCL.
