History

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?

  1. No Child Left Behind had many flaws.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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