Sixty-four years after  Brown v. Board of Education  made the legally sanctioned segregation of U.S. public schools unconstitutional, schools remain unconscionably segregated. 

While the lessons and legacy of 
Brown continue to be battled out in school boards and courtrooms across the nation, the social science supporting school integration has only become stronger. 

Get an overview of this research in NCSD's latest brief.
Join us tomorrow on Twitter, to commemorate the 64th anniversary
of Brown v. Board of Education and to discuss themes from this brief.
