A California school choice advocate took issue with an AP story that school choice leads to segregation. “Most Black folks wouldn’t call Morehouse or Howard segregated,” Dick Tillotson points out in The Education Post. “Separation and segregation are different, segregation in this context is aligned with racism and involves the use of power, of excluding us and leaving us with less than a fair share.”

“To say Black families are ‘pushed’ by charters misses the point—they are pushed by a historically racist system that I personally don’t think has really changed its spots. But that’s just me.”
