It has long been a public policy goal—and social ideal—to bring black and white children together in the same schools. It is a goal, however, that has not been met. In this forum we will discuss several reasons for this, including federal policies that have all but assured segregated housing and, hence, segregated public schools. We will also look at potential ways to solve these problems that are both ambitious and realistic about what can be accomplished. We hope you’ll join us for this crucial conversation.
