Resegregation in NC Schools

North Carolina’s million-plus elementary and secondary students are now back in school. Those schools have been legally desegregated since the landmark Brown vs. Board of Education case in 1954. But is that truly how it is in North Carolina? Is desegregation the same as integration, and, is integration the best thing for our schools? Host Frank Stasio speaks with Reverend William Barber from Goldsboro; John Charles Boger, a co-editor of the new book “School Resegregation: Must the South Turn Back?” (UNC Press/2005) and a professor of Law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Charles Clotfelter, a contributor to the book and a professor of Public Policy and Economics at Duke University.
