Description

This four-part series reveals that education in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is overwhelmingly not diverse despite 50 years of supposed desegregation. Economic factors often lead to racial segregation, but research shows that "white flight" causes suburban areas to be just as separated as big cities. The private schooling option also steals many white students from public schools. One school district attempts to prove that with effort almost perfect racial balance can be achieved.
