Most Americans say black children have as good a chance as white children in their communities to get a good education. Thus, the need for the types of school-choice programs used around the country to improve classroom diversity may not seem urgent to the broad public. Those programs received a blow from a recent Supreme Court decision striking down race-based admissions policies in public schools. How Americans react to that case remains to be seen.
Comment: This shows the ignorance of the general population. Considering the poor educational system, that makes perfect sense.
