As we celebrate the 60 year anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education it appears that public schools are still segregated. 60 years ago laws were passed to de-segregate public schools based on race and stll today many public schools remain segregated, but not because of race. The new underlying factor of public school segregation is economics. Many segregated public schools lack high quality resources (i.e books, computers, highly educated teachers, etc.) because of economics. Can a law fix this or is there something else we can do? Tune in to discuss how we can help address this problem.
