An article from the Star Tribune reports that according to a new report, public schools are becoming increasingly divided by race, even as minority populations increase nationwide.

A Harvard University Civil Rights Project found integration between whites and blacks to be decreasing or steady in all but a handful of the nation’s largest school districts over the last 14 years.

The Project’s conclusion is that the resegregation trend is a result of recent court rulings that dismantled race-based desegregation laws, and also reflects discouragement over stalled integration efforts.
