Description

Fifty years after the Brown vs. Board of Education court decision promised better schools for black children, this Tribune investigation found that most black children in Illinois still are relegated to segregated and inferior schools. The Tribune analyzed test scores, student demographics and teaching and learning data at about 4,000 schools to reveal a number of trends. For instance, schools with a majority of black students have larger class sizes, fewer fully certified teachers and more instances of being on the state's academic watch list.
