The Intersection of School Desegregation and Economic Globalization in America
Brown, Frank
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2008 n1 Spr 2008
Public education in America continues to be viewed as being worthy of major investments to improve the county's economic position in the world. But quality education for many Americans is still not within their reach. Fifty years after the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in "Brown v. Board of Education" eliminating legal segregation of public education by race the country is still a long ways from realizing quality education for all of its citizens. This paper explores what happened in public education after "Brown": changes in the demographics of the population, and economic changes world wide that should motivate the county to invest more to education minority children. Educational inequality is the major source of the pool from which America produces its labor force is changing; and demographic changes in the population along racial lines is increasing at a faster rate than in the past. This paper also focuses on the ability to produce well educated students to be more competitive economically given a more racial and ethnically diverse population.
