Brown at 60: Great Progress, a Long Retreat and an Uncertain Future

Abstract

"Marking the 60th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education, the UCLA's Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles assessed the nation's progress in addressing school segregation, and found that--contrary to many claims--the South has not gone back to the level of segregation before Brown. It has, however, lost all of the additional progress made after 1967, but is still the least segregated region for black students. New statistics show a vast transformation of the nation's school population since the civil rights era. The authors reveal that Latinos are significantly more segregated than blacks in suburban America."
