    since, roughly, desegregation.

    I'm sure that's just coincidence.

    •  No, they were failing before. (0+ / 0-)

      That is why desegregation was needed -- to give Black kids a shot at good schools.

      •  Being sarcastic, thinking of the doomsday media (3+ / 0-)

        reports -- books/magazines/newspapers etc. -- which have been announcing that public schools are "failing" (for several decades now), therefore drastic changes must be made/superior private schools are essential and should be provided public funds etc.

        The point at which the (white american) CW recognized that There Is An Issue seems to have just happened at roughly the same time that those black kids were permitted to go the same schools as white kids. Correlation is not causation, of course.
