Racial Equality in Education in Georgia

It’s been 70 years since the Brown v Board of Education decision declared school segregation unconstitutional. Overall schools are more integrated than they were years ago, however recent research shows segregation, both racial and economic, has been increasing in some school districts. Cassandra Happe is an analyst with the personal finance website WalletHub.

Happe says Georgia did fairly well when it comes to racial equality in education, but the state did show larger gaps when it came to test scores. She discussed the results with WUGA.
