School segregation in the United States is on the rise. Educational Leadership asked four noted educators who are passionate advocates for educational equity--Jonathan Kozol, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Susan Eaton, and Patricia Gandara--to discuss what should be done to tackle this serious problem. Their comments cover such topics as targeting federal funding, changing housing policies, providing incentives to encourage suburban schools to enroll inner-city youth, maintaining high expectations for all, and broadening students' horizons. This article addresses the topics of achievement gaps and educational equity.
