ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A published report says Maryland's public schools are becoming more racially segregated as the state's student population grows more diverse.

The report, published by the Civil Rights Project at UCLA finds that 54 percent of black students were enrolled in schools where at least 90 percent of the students were minorities in 2010, up from 33 percent in 1989.

Researchers also found increases in school segregation for Latino students.

In 2010, 38 percent of Latino students attended "intensely segregated schools," where minorities constituted at least 90 percent of the student population.

The report is the second in a series of reports analyzing school segregation in the Eastern states.

Researchers say that Maryland will have to decide whether or not revive its efforts at school desegregation.
