Brown v. Board Education
Educational achievement of poor black Hispanic public school students is sadly not considered by the political giants, according to Bob Herbert in his March 21, 2011 article in the New York Times.
An important study in Maryland showed that low income students who went to affluent elementary schools did far better than low income students in higher poverty schools in one country. Studies have shown that it is not the race of students but rather the improved environment of schools with better teachers, fewer classroom disruptions, students more engaged academically and more parental involvements.
It is always about the uncomfortable issue of race. What is most important is racial integration. Chana Joffe did not know the meaning of "white kid wasted". Kiana also did not know of and a New Yorker in a city of four million white people, who never even had one white friend, she was curious about white kid. She decided to go to college in Upstate New York on a one woman integration program.
Chana notes that there are only few places in the country that have seriously committed to school integration over a long time.
