In this quick video I explain how American schools have been resegregated even after Brown vs Board of Education.

If you’d like to know more about school choice, here’s some facts:

  • Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump want vouchers to be used at private schools- places that can deny students on the basis of religion and sexuality
  • Trump also wants vouchers to be used on for profit online schools and for profit charter schools, which have been shown to not be any better than public schools.
  • The Trump Administration’s school choice plan will cost about 20 billion dollars, which is money we don’t have.
  • Currently, vouchers in school choice states predominately go to low income students and students with disabilities. They do not cover full private tuition costs.
  • Poorly designed, tough to navigate programs can be headaches for low income parents due to time and educational constraints
