“At the same time that national discussions are happening about school bathrooms and transgender students, it seems almost archaic to be hearing about desegregation; but this week a federal court ordered a Mississippi town to do just that. More than 50 years after the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education the town of Cleveland, Miss. will combine two high schools and middle schools, that historically have been separated by race. What is gained by this decision is not just about students’ constitutional right for an integrated education, but more importantly that integration will help re-frame how students experience something new and seemingly different – realizing that diversity helps us grow as individuals and a society.”
