Problems Persist 61 Years After Brown v. Board Of Education

White students are much more likely to attend low-poverty schools compared to black students. Black students are more likely to drop out of high school altogether compared to white students. As such, far too many black students never even manage to get the basic educational requirements that will allow them to find work. It is difficult to find even a low-paying job without the benefit of a high school diploma, and yet many young black people find themselves in that position every single day. Black students need to be given a better start in life and their schools require more funding. More talented black students need support and encouragement, so they can one day become teachers themselves. This is a problem that needs to be solved on an individual level and a societal level, since it was solved on a legal level 61 years ago.
