Remember when school segregation was considered a terrible thing?
Maybe you are not old enough to remember.
I am. I remember. I attended racially segregated schools in Houston in the 1940s and 1950s.
It was not okay.
The Supreme Court said it was wrong.
EduShyster has discovered that racial segregation has become normal in certain schools in Boston.
Using humor, this blogger raises a very important issue.
Why is it we don’t care about racial integration anymore?
Why is it okay to open schools with a citywide pool that ends up almost 100% black?
Ruckus C. Johnson, an economist at the University of California at Berkeley, has published studies showing that black students who went to desegregated schools for at least five years had higher graduation rates, high entry rates to college, higher college graduation rates, higher lifetime income, and healthier lives.
Desegregation is good for our society.
It prepares children to live in a diverse society.
Why is it no longer the civil rights issue of our time?
