Description

Chana has traced the history of the school from its founding and come to the present. But now: One unexpected last chapter. Last year, the school district for BHS mandated a change in the zoning process to ensure all middle schools would be racially integrated. No longer can white families hoard resources in a few select schools. Black and Latino parents have been demanding this change since the late 1950s. The courts have mandated it. Chana asks: How did this happen? And is this a blueprint for real, systemic change?

The premise of this series, is that schools need white children in them to be good. A deeply disturbing thought -and quite racist. If all children were valued equally by the education system, the colour of their skin would be irrelevent. Blaming white parents for a systemic failing of the state is appalling.
