60 Years After Brown v. Board, Will Congress Revive a Dual School System?

The Secular Jurist

Congress is considering new charter legislation, awarding more money to the charter sector, which will operate with minimal accountability or transparency.

The bill has already passed the House of Representatives with a bipartisan majority and now moves to the Senate.

Make no mistake: On the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board decision, Congress is set to expand a dual school system. One sector, privately managed, may choose its students, exclude those who might pull down its test scores and kick out those it doesn’t want. The other sector — the public schools — must take in all students, even those kicked out by the charters.
