Are our schools becoming more segregated? In 1954 "Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka" desegregated
schools in the United States... but, it appears that the country is losing ground in this effort.
According to an article
in Aljazeera America: "African-American and Latino students are less likely to attend racially and ethnically diverse schools today than at any other time in the last four decades. This, almost 60 years after the landmark Supreme Court ruling that desegregated schools, represents a major setback for one of the core goals of the civil rights movement."
