The time has come to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that was announced by Chief Justice Earl Warren on May 17, 1954. Today, however, a look at California’s schools shows little sign of movement toward integrating the education of the state’s remarkably diverse population of young people. In fact, we see major court orders long abandoned, the idea of state leadership and support for integration essentially forgotten, an entirely new system of highly segregated charter schools, and the spread of Latino and African American segregation into major sectors of what not too long ago were white suburbs.
