Districts and Charters Pursuing Socioeconomic Diversity
More than sixty years after the Brown v. Board of Education decision, many American public schools remain racially and socioeconomically segregated. This report highlights the work being done by ninety-one school districts and charter schools to promote integration. These school districts consider socioeconomic factors in student assignment policies.
“By most measures, our public schools are more racially segregated now than they were in the 1970s. … The efforts of the districts and charters we identified provide hope in the continuing push for integration, demonstrating a variety of pathways for policymakers, education leaders, and community members to advance equity.”
