Tackling the Resegregation of American Public Schools

Hosted by

It’s been 60 years since the US Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. For many years desegregation was one of America’s most contentious political issues, producing conflicting local rules, state laws and many more judicial decisions. Now, the population has changed. For the first time, minority students outnumber whites in public schools, producing a new reality: schools are being resegregated.
