The latest Under the Law column for Kappan magazine from UW-Madison's Julie Underwood takes a look at segregation in the education system. Underwood is the Susan Engeleiter Professor of Education Law, Policy, and Practice, and the former dean of the School of Education. Underwood begins by writing: "The U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark anti-discrimination case, Brown v. Board of Education (1954), offered the hope of equity and access for all children. Unfortunately, what started as a strong judicial statement lost its steam and left schools to try to make good on these promises in a changing legal environment."
