Research Item Is Opportunity Knocking or Slipping Away? Racial Diversity and Segregation in Pennsylvania
As a slow-growth increasingly diverse state with an aging population, Pennsylvania needs to think hard about its continued passive acceptance of segregated and inferior schooling, and about the spread of destructive racial patterns from urban areas into growing sectors of suburbia and small cities.
