Race & Class in Public Education

Program #KOZJ002. Recorded in Albany, NY on October 17, 1997.

Public schools are a political and social battleground infused with issues of race and class. A recent study found that since the landmark Supreme Court decision outlawing segregation, some schools today are more segregated and less equal than in 1954.
