New Harvard Study, "Schools More Separate" Finds Increased Segregation in 1990s (tags)
America's schools grew increasingly more segregated in the 1990s. This was the lead finding in a new report from the Civil Rights Project of Harvard University, "Schools More Separate: Consequences of a Decade of Resegregation," by Gary Orfield with Nora Gordon. "Much of the progress for black students since the 1960s was eliminated during a decade which brought three Supreme Court decisions limiting desegregation remedies," while Latinos have become even more segregated than blacks.
