Poverty and seg­re­ga­tion per­sist in U.S. schools, re­port says

The Signal - - USA TODAY -

Too of­ten, low-in­come, black and Latino stu­dents end up in schools with crum­bling walls, old text­books and un­qual­i­fied teach­ers, ac­cord­ing to a re­port re­leased Thursday by the U.S. Com­mis­sion on Civil Rights.

The com­mis­sion said in­equities are caused by the fact that schools are mostly funded with state and lo­cal tax dol­lars. More than 92% of fund­ing comes from non-fed­eral sources, ac­cord­ing to the Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment.
