Gavin Au Sociology 1 Response Paper #8 For the reading, “Historic Reversals, Accelerating Resegregation, and the Need for New Integration Strategies” by Gary Orfield and Chungmei Lee, is an article basically about the schools in American are undergoing the resegregation over time. And is mainly focus on Brown V. Board of Education decision in 1954, which the author thinks this has bring a great affect in racial segregation. The reading actually brings the effect on increasing racial and class inequality. Being a sociology student, I am now able to understand that racial group in America is a relatively sensitive topic, and skin color can be accounted for a major difference. From the research of the author, there is a increasing trend showing that more and more White student are now choose to enroll in private school. In return, the public schools are now having a rising proportion of poor children, where segregation is occurred. The author want to propose the problem that the increasing racial and economic isolation problem must be solves as soon as possible. The reason behind this is because the future of the country will greatly depend on the education of its surging nonwhite enrollment. In order to share an equalized workforce, this is an urgent issue to deal with.
