Far and Away the Best Analysis of Resegregation

July 21, 2019

I somehow missed this article by NYTIMES writer Emily Badger from a few weeks ago… but I highly recommend it! Ms. Badger provides an excellent description of the link between housing and segregation and offers an interesting history lesson on a road not taken by the Nixon administration that might have been a game changer.

One important point Ms. Badger makes implicitly: the issue of how to address resegregation cannot be addressed with a 3 minute sound bite. The problem can only be solved if it is clearly perceived as a problem and addressed with a comprehensive approach… AND as one researcher notes, it CANNOT be solved solely by public schools.
