Report finds segregation in education on the rise

By Jennifer C. Kerr, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Six decades after the Supreme Court outlawed separating students by race, stubborn disparities persist in how the country educates its poor and minority children.

A report Tuesday by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office found deepening segregation of black and Hispanic students at high-poverty K-12 public schools. These schools often offered fewer math, science and college prep classes, while having disproportionally higher rates of students who were held back in ninth grade, suspended or expelled.

"Segregation in public K-12 schools isn't getting better. It's getting worse, and getting worse quickly," Rep. Bobby Scott of Virginia said. The analysis, he said, confirmed that America's schools are largely segregated by race and class, leaving "more than 20 million students of color now attending racially and socioeconomically isolated public schools."

Here's how this happens; forced integration happens, predominate race moves to other areas. I don't think you will ever solve the problem or is it even a problem? You don't see Mexican Americans fighting to get into all Black Schools or Whites fighting to get into all Black Schools or even Blacks wanting to hang out with the White Boys and Girls. Come on, lets be real. People should be allowed to walk their own opinion and not just talk it and that goes for everyone not just Whites! Integration is in direct conflict with Affirmative Action. When Minorities are not responsible for the same outcomes as Whites then how can you expect them to be in the same classes or learn at the same rate when Affirmative Action says they can't? The establishment creates it's own demons by trying to be politically correct when all it really has to do is be right!
