The segregation of kindergartners — by the numbers

Here, from the non-profit Economic Policy Institute, is a snapshot of how segregated public schools are, starting in kindergarten. It was written by Elaine Weiss and Emma García. Weiss  has served as the national coordinator for the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education since 2011.  García, who joined the Economic Policy Institute in 2013, specializes in the economics of education and education policy.  EPI was created in 1986 to broaden the discussion about economic policy to include the interests of low- and middle-income workers.

Editors Note: I don’t think ALL nationalism is inherently bad (see ethnic nationalism), but when connected to the State, it propagates an irrational sense of superiority over other peoples and ways of life insofar that it is willing to use war — and all the dehumanization therein — to gain hegemony. Or it fosters a false sense of unity in a multitude of ethnic diversity, eventually acting to erase that diversity.
