Travis, Jon E. – Thought & Action, 2012
When these inequities began to change in the 20th century, due in part to the sweeping court-ordered integration following Brown v. Board of Education and the simultaneous expansion of public colleges and universities, all citizens began to gain access to educational achievement and, as a result, true access to the American power structure. The…

Stiff-Williams, Helen; Sturtz, John P. – Social Education, 2012
A typical U.S. high school student today might be able to recite some milestones of civil rights history--the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955-56; the Freedom Rides of 1961; and (some would add) the election of the first African American president in 2008. But how many students understand that these events, which historians call out as milestones,…

Shuster, Kate – Southern Poverty Law Center (NJ1), 2011
The National Assessment of Educational Progress--commonly called "The Nation's Report Card"--tells a dismal story: Only 2% of high school seniors in 2010 could answer a simple question about the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark "Brown v. Board of Education" decision. And it's no surprise. Across the country, state educational…

Fifty-two years after "Brown v. Board of Education" and 42 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, there remains a declining presence of Black teachers and administrators in the United States.

Gandara, Patricia; Orfield, Gary – Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, 2010
In education, reform tends to follow cycles, often bouncing from one extreme to another without considering the possibility of incorporating multiple perspectives simultaneously.
