Segregation gains ground 60 years after Brown

Posted: Updated:
   WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new report says segregation is making a comeback in U.S schools.

   This comes as Saturday's 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision approaches. The ruling ended legal discrimination in public schools.

   The Civil Rights Project at UCLA says progress toward integration following the Supreme Court decision has largely been rolled back. Black students are seeing more school segregation than they have in decades, and now more than half of Latino students attend schools that are majority Latino.

   The author of the report, Gary Orfield, called the finding troubling, with many minority students receiving poorer educations than white and Asian students who tend to be in middle-class schools.

   The report calls for a national study on segregation and ways to end it.
