This article asserts the continued existence of racial segregation in U.S. public schools, despite of the 1954 Supreme Court decision for Brown versus Board of Education, which found that government-sponsored racial segregation damaged the psychological development of all children. The segregated school environment, whether imposed through law or de facto because of choice or residential patterns, whatever the qualitative similarities in facilities or services to a particular school or community, perpetuates racial caste and stereotype as the overriding and major focus of both education and life.
