My name is Edwin D. Bell, I am a professor of Education at WSSU. I grew up in Roxbury, Massachusetts a few blocks from Father Breeden’s church where Jonathan Kozol started teaching. I have very clear understanding of the type of urban segregation that Kozol describes.
“Education, of course, is not among the rights afforded explicit protection under our Federal Constitution. Nor do we find any basis for saying it is implicitly so protected.” U.S. Supreme Court, San Antonio School District v. Rodriquez, 411 U.S. 1 (1973)
If we have agreed to live with this reality essentially unaltered for another generation or for several generations yet to come, I think we need to honestly say so. I also think we need to recognize that our acceptance of a dual education system will have consequences that may be no less destructive than those we have seen the past century. (Kozol, 2005, p. 11)
