Housing discrimination — stopping or discouraging minorities from moving to majority-white areas — also plays a role in school segregation and “that’s been a harder nut to crack,” said Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, which argued the Brown case in front of the Supreme Court.
Education Week's latest issue commemorates the 60th anniversary of the landmark ruling in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas.
