According to the author of a new UCLA Civil Rights Project report: School choice is only exacerbating the effects of the city’s extreme housing segregation. Last week, a group of Washington, D.C., parents and teachers stopped Betsy DeVos, the new Secretary of Education, from entering a D.C. middle school.
As a new report from UCLA’s Civil Rights Project suggests, the protesters may have cause for concern. D.C.’s school district, despite being a darling of the school choice movement is intensely divided by both race and class.
