School Desegregation: Brown v. Board of Education at 60

Hosted by

Six decades after Brown versus the Board of Education, American schools are still segregated by race.  What happened to all those court orders and so-called "forced busing?" Is the real cause of school segregation discrimination in housing and income inequality?  Also, the FCC green-lights paid priority on the Internet, and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki tells Senators he's "mad as hell." Can he head off calls for his resignation?
