Title:Desegregation in San Francisco

A century-long legal battle to desegregate San Francisco's public schools ended in 1983 with an affirmative action agreement to make all schools equally diverse. But 11 years later, a lawsuit filed by Chinese American parents effectively eliminated race-based admissions policies. This audio excerpt from National Public Radio's All Things Considered captures the voices of students and educators on both sides of the debate.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

Grade range: 6-12.
