Is school choice intensifying segregation in American schools? We begin this episode with a review of recent education news about the impact of discrimination on young kids, the effort one district is making to have parents pay a fee when their kids are absent, and a new report about school police. We then take a deep dive into the controversy surrounding school choice. With American schools more segregated than they were before Brown v. Board, are school choice measures addressing inequity or are they making segregation worse?
