NEW SEGREGATION?

Published February 23, 2021 by Nan Mykel



Legislative resegregation of schools catching on in red states. Several weeks ago, Iowa’s governor proposed allowing students to transfer out of schools that have a voluntary or court-ordered diversity plan. Similar efforts have been reported in Louisiana and Alabama.

And here comes Indiana, where a similar proposal caused an uproar on Thursday in the statehouse and turned into a walkout and confrontation. WTHR

I’ve met some goodhearted liberals who are afraid of public schools.
