School re-Segregation 50+Years After Brown
Brown v. Board of Education (1954) sought to end segregation in education; and yet, nearly 60 years later, schools are more segregated than integrated. Orefield & Lee (2004) wrote that in the post-Brown era urban schools of New York, Virginia, Chicago and South Carolina, the student populations are approximately 98% African American and 1% White. In western state inner-city schools, ethnic minorities are largely represented compared to White students, which is disturbing! Let’s not forget that desegregation began at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas (see Central High School Movie http://www.videosurf.com/little-rock-central-high-50-years-later-289288). How can it be that 50+ years later, urban schools are more segregated! We must have the courage to talk about race and racism; we still have to go!
