The Resegregation of American Schools

I've already posted about this but I wanted to follow up with this good interview that is worth a watch.

The Real News Network interviews ProPublica reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones to discuss her year-long investigation into how one of desegregation's success stories in Tuscaloosa, Alabama became one of the most segregated school systems in the country.   Do take a moment to watch it.

If you want to help make Georgia a leader in addressing the new Jim Crow in all its forms--please chip in $14 now to elect this blogger in 2014 to the Georgia General Assembly.

The resegregation of American schools is part of an ongoing systemic crisis that boils down to an unwillingness to address the long term problems of race and class that have challenged our nation.

As I mentioned the other day on Facebook.  Education policy should be founded on a basic principle: A quality education for every child. No exceptions.
