School Segregation

Separate is inherently unequal.

We cannot say we want equal educational opportunities for all children and then fight to advantage our own (at the expense of others).

Whose children should be sacrificed?

Segregated schools exacerbate inequality.

The longer a black child stays in a segregated all-black school, the further they fall behind white peers.

Segregated schooling = segregated life

The longer a black child stays in a segregated all-black school, they are:

  • Less likely to attend and graduate college

  • More likely to be poor as adults

  • More likely to spend time in jail

  • More likely to live in segregated neighborhoods as adults

  • Less healthy as adults

  • More likely to live shorter lives

And they pass these traits on to their children.
