All Sections1919 unread replies.1919 replies.
In the 1960’s the rise of the Civil Rights Movement spurred massive social change resulting in sweeping civil rights legislation. But progress on school segregation was still limited. Bussing produced some successes but had its critics as well (such as the problems discussed in Baton Rouge in this module’s film). Looking back at history, would you say that school segregation is now a thing of the past or a still ever-present problem? If it is a problem, what would you propose we do about it? Explain your response and use evidence and examples from the readings and film to support your argument.
