Kahlenberg on integration of a different kind

Richard Kahlenberg of the Century Foundation pointed out an interesting juxtaposition in the New York Times. In the book review section appeared a critique of Jonathan Kozol's new book, Shame of a Nation. The critique engaged the question of busing and desegregation in public schools. Its an old debate played out in the media and in the courts of over the last 50 years.

But on the front page was an article I posted about last week that talked about a few programs that desegregate not by race but by income. The results are astounding. Kahlenberg thinks this is the wave of the future, this is the discussion we should be having. I agree. Check out his article here.
