    Even with court-ordered desegregation efforts, social and academic segregation can occur internally, and without court-ordered desegregation efforts, students end up with fewer resources and teachers have less support. There are positives to segregation in terms of morale, and having teachers as role models who are racially diverse. Regardless of what path public policy leaders choose to tackle the growing issue, scholars Bertrand, Perez, and Rogers said it best: “it is important that efforts be taken in both political and academic arenas to galvanize the discourses and discursive strategies that promote equity and expose those that re-entrench racism and classism in education”…

    The start of African Americans playing baseball broke many barriers for the race, not only in sports, but also in society. The desegregation of baseball helped lead to the desegregation of society as a whole. This broken barrier paved the way for many opportunities for African Americans. In 1947, Jackie Robinson made history by doing what no other African American had ever done. Major League Baseball started in 1867, and until the 1940s, only Caucasians were allowed to play. From 1947 to 1959,…
