Thanks for this post, April! Loved that chart!
Because we (at Integrated Schools) always think of racism in relation to schools, your post also resonated in this regard. If we are going to deal with our increasing segregation in the US, we need to include our children and our schools. We must tie our fates together by enrolling our kids all together.
We know (research says!) that the choices that parents — and especially white and/or privileged parents — make for our kids’ schools is often inextricably tied with what fellow parents say. When people drop coded comments about “good” and “bad” schools, we must interrupt that!
