Which policies or events since 1990 have sought to reduce the racial inequality in public school education, and with what effect?

I can only think of No Child Left Behind, which had a limited effect. But I don't know why it had a limited effect and I can't think of any other policies?

    No Child Left Behind had many flaws.

    Thank you. Has the government passed any other legislation or policies intended to curb inequality in schools? I was thinking maybe the Fair Housing Act, but that was at most an indirect policy.

    The Fair Housing Act certainly helps.

    It's a slow process as my nephew Wayne Woolley has found in Red Bank, NJ. He and others are leading a movement to prevent the establishment of a charter school. I think that's where we'll see progress as each school district produces its own citizens to lead the way toward more integration.

    Note that the so-called Fair Housing Act is actually Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 - long before 1990.
