The case for getting white people to voluntarily desegregate public schools

Hosted by

It’s been more than 60 years since Brown v. Board of Education, and research shows that children of all races learn better in integrated schools. But today, most kids will start classes in schools that are highly segregated. Schools in America have been increasingly segregated since the 90s. We find out why, and hear from an activist who says it’s up to white parents -- like her -- to voluntarily desegregate.
