What the above data tell us:

With the exception of White (not Hispanic), the percentages of students from each racial/ethnic group were higher than those of teachers in the 2012-13 school year. It should be noted that Black students represented 1.2% of student enrollment, while Black teachers represented only 0.1% of all teachers in Larimer County (526 students to 3 teachers). Students of Two or More Races (157:1) were the next most overrepresented followed by Asian or Pacific Islander (75:1), Hispanic (72:1), Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander (66:1), and American Indian (41:1).
