One of the biggest and most lamented hallmarks of America’s historically white supremacist system was education segregation.
However, in 1954, Brown vs Board of Education, a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, led to the outlawing of segregation on the basis on race in all of America’s public school systems in each state.
Though this legislative move looked good in the history books, it was largely ineffective at preventing education-based segregation.
Loopholes in federal laws, which govern public education systems have caused low-profile, yet powerful pro-segregation lobbyists to successfully reverse the national course by legally sustaining school segregation. According to Newsweek Magazine, the busing of students has failed miserably due to the loopholes in our nation’s education laws.
“New York was exempt from Brown because its schools were not segregated by law, like those in the Deep South. That made white residents all the more furious, because they felt they had done nothing to segregate schools and should therefore not be forced to integrate them,” wrote Newsweek columnist Alexander Nazaryan.
But in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a black educator named Howard Fuller (pictured standing in classroom) is totally fine with the fact that American schools are still segregated. In a legitimate sense, Fuller, 77, has strong point.
Black children have become far less culturally conscious of their own race’s achievements and they are very much weaker academically than they were in the cruelest days of the Jim Crow era of school segregation. Fuller did something about this by founding the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy, the pride of this city’s black community.
“No matter what kind of [integration] plan you come up with, people with money are going to figure out how to take care of their kids. What do you do in places like Milwaukee where white people simply aren’t going to opt in?” Fuller said in an exclusive review with The Hechinger Report.

In order for black parents and educators to shield their children from the white dollars, anger, and resentment that controls our nation’s education systems, they must control their own conduits for academically empowering their future generations.
