Desegregation and the Public Schools - NYTimes.com

The article and accompanying video offer some insightful comments on segregation in US public schools. Particularly worth noting is the "quiet" way that the busing movements also brought together people of different socio-economic classes. The de facto resegregation of public schools has also meant that many of the most segregated schools also count high rates of poverty; as much 65% of students in some schools are poor.

What are your thoughts? Should we reinstitute busing programs?
