Zubrzycki, Jaclyn – Education Week, 2012

"Board of Education," the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that ushered in an era of efforts to integrate public schools, charter school advocates and researchers are shining a light on a number of those independent public schools that are integrated by design. Two new reports--one from…

Intercultural Development Research Association, 2017
By law, public schools must serve all children. The education of undocumented students is guaranteed by the "Plyler vs. Doe" decision, and certain procedures must be followed when registering immigrant children in school to avoid violation of their civil rights. In "Plyler vs. Doe," the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that children of…

In June 2007, the Supreme Court handed down its first major decision on school desegregation in 12 years in the Louisville and Seattle cases. A…

Cohen, Danielle – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2021
Eight years ago, in 2014, the Civil Rights Project issued a report that raised awareness about the dire state of segregation in New York State and, in particular, New York City schools.

Orfield, Gary; Jarvie, Danielle – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2020
The brief first presents new facts on the extraordinary segregation of Black and Latino students in the state's public schools. Second, it shows that those groups are doubly segregated by race and poverty at the most educationally unsuccessful schools. These children are, on average, from families with far lower income and wealth and with parents…

The South was the central focus of the "Brown v. Board of Education" decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in 1954. The landmark ruling held that laws mandating segregation in the school systems of the eleven states of the Old Confederacy, along with D.C. and six other states, violated the U.S. Constitution. Intense opposition met the…

The Civil Rights Project (CRP) is in the midst of an analysis of rapidly growing charter school enrollment, which the authors anticipate releasing next month.

Civil Rights Project / Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2010
The Civil Rights Project (CRP) was founded, in part, to bring rigorous social science inquiry to bear on the most pressing civil rights issues. On-going trends involving public school segregation have been a primary focus of the CRP's research, and the expanding policy emphasis on school choice prompted analysis of the much smaller--but…

Frankenberg, Erica; Siegel-Hawley, Genevieve; Wang, Jia – Civil Rights Project / Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2010
Seven years after the Civil Rights Project first documented extensive patterns of charter school segregation, the charter sector continues to stratify students by race, class and possibly language. This study is released at a time of mounting federal pressure to expand charter schools, despite on-going and accumulating evidence of charter school…

Mickey-Pabello, David – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2020
In November of 1996, California voted and approved Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative) by a tally of 54.55% to 45.45%. It is unknown how many of those voters voted for the initiative because the name implied that it was pro-civil rights. Nonetheless, California became the first state to ban the practice of…
