The Bundys Within

ProPublica has a three part series on segregation, or the long one part.

ProPublica examined 24 years of demographic data compiled by the National Center for Education Statistics and found that districts grew steadily more segregated after their desegregation orders ended. A separate 2011 study in the American Economic Journal found that within 10 years of being released, school districts unwound about 60 percent of the integration they had achieved under court order.

Too early for the calculus, and politics for that matter.
