Despite all the gains we have made as a country (which people love to harp on) – a harsh reality still exists for people of color and low income individuals across the nation. Schools and neighborhoods still remain separated by race and income. More money is funneled into schools serving better-off, white communities while lower income communities of color suffer with worse quality education and worse educational outcomes as a result.
