Organization:Harvard Civil Rights Project
Short Description:This report is about the changing patterns of segregation in American public schools through the 2003-2004 school year.

Annotation:This report is about the changing patterns of segregation in American public schools through the 2003-2004 school year. It examines the transformation of racial composition in the nation’s schools, the dynamic patterns of segregation and desegregation of all racial groups in regions, states, and districts by using data from 1968 until 2003-4. It also explores the relationship between racial and economic segregation, documents the growing presence of multiracial schools, and discusses the implications of the lifting of desegregation orders on districts and possible policy alternatives. The report ends with a brief discussion of what could be done to increase integration in schools.
