From loyal subscriber Abby, a Math instructional coach, in response to last week’s article, “Conversations Aren’t Enough
,” by Nikole Hannah-Jones:
My kids go to Berkeley Public Schools, and the elementary schools are consciously integrated through a complicated busing and lottery system. There are still many problems, and the achievement gap is large. I wonder what Ms. Hannah-Jones would say the next step is after desegregation. How do we leverage desegregation to increase educational opportunity?
