Segregation Now, Segregation Forever? Segregating California’s Future: Inequality and its Alternative 60 Years after Brown v. Board of Education
In this UCLA Civil Rights Project report, Gary Orfield and Jongyeon Ee on the 60th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education assessed California's progress in addressing school segregation, and found that California students are more racially segregated than ever. The authors conclude that California is the third worst state when it comes to school segregation for African Americans, behind New York and Illinois. California is, however, the state in which Latino students are most segregated.
