from Education Next
As the race for the Democratic presidential nomination heats up, the televised debates have drawn attention to the state of segregation in U.S. public schools.

Board of Education, education reformers are debating which strategies should be pursued to mitigate segregation in America's K-12 public schools.

At the same time, many urban schools remain deeply segregated.
