Wow...just read this and wanted to get some thoughts. Does this ruling ring true for you? Do you agree?

From the Washington Post:

"Today, African American students are more isolated than they were 40 years ago, while most education policymakers and reformers have abandoned integration as a cause. That reality is explained in a new report called “For Public Schools, Segregation Then, Segregation Since: Education and the Unfinished March” by Richard Rothstein of the nonprofit Economic Policy Institute, which looks at the reasons and the implications of continued school segregation."

Poverty and race tend to not to get mentioned as much in conversations about education reform. Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences about this.
