        The Lowdown | Why Are American Public Schools Still So Segregated? Lesson Plan

        More than 60 years after the landmark school segregation case Brown v. Board of Education, America’s public schools have become much more segregated even as they have enrolled more students of color than ever before. White students are typically concentrated in schools with other white students, highly segregated by race and income. Meanwhile, students of color, especially African American and Latino students are concentrated in low-income schools. This Lowdown lesson will explore the factors that led to school desegregation and re-segregation, and ask students to reflect on these factors through the lens of their own school experience.
