Inequities continue to exist in the vast majority of public schools in the nation that continue to limit the number of poor children from African American and Latino families. It's a practice that not only impacts high school admissions but also the middle schools as found in a New York City report.
And it's one thing when it happens in the private school sector but for it to continue in the public school sector is not only shameful, but the practice deprives a vast majority over 70 percent of children from poor families from an equal educational opportunity.
African-American civil-rights organization filed a complaint challenging what they contend are discriminatory practices in public school admissions in NYC schools.
