Separate and Unequal – the legacy of integration in education

I was at Negritude and caught this post: Jonathan Kozol talks about contemporary segregation. One little problem, the post is entitled the re-segregation of America’s schools. Which would be fine if they had ever been integrated. We should really take a look at history and realize that LBJ’s great society never happened, African Americans were never really integrated into “America.” (Thanks Cynthia) Don’t mistake tokenism and hand outs for integration.
