Remove Racial and Class Divisions
The institutions that should bring us together are dividing us. We must end government-sponsored policies that encourage and perpetuate social divisions of class and race. Public schools are gatekeepers of opportunity – and it’s critical that they do not contribute to social separation by arbitrarily assigning students to schools based on home address. The practice of residential assignment is an intentional public policy decision that results in opportunity for some kids and a barrier for others.
