Post-Parents Involved...

In the wake of the Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School Dist. No. 1 Supreme Court decision, Richard Kahlenberg makes the case that school districts can – and should – use income levels instead of racial categories to integrate their schools. Here’s his short summary of the idea in Slate, and the larger brief here from the Century Foundation.


BTW, what is the legal shorthand by which this case will ultimately be called? “Parents Involved in Community Schools?” Too long. “Seattle?” Too general. “PICS?” Too vague. “The Seattle and Louisville school race decisions?” Hardly shorthand.
