Publisher's Summary

Brown vs. the Board of Education was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared the old "separate but equal" policies of many school boards unconstitutional. The Brown case triggered numerous court mediated desegregation policies around the country, all designed to get equal education to all students. Producer Kathy Baron looks at school districts in California, fifty years after the Brown decision. What, in fact, does an equal education look like? What she discovers is a broad range of inequalities, from overcrowded classrooms and few resources to under-qualified teachers and little preparation available for college.
