ABSTRACT

Empirical investigation shows that, even though New Jersey has a very diverse population, most of its public schools remain extremely segregated. According to the Civil Right Project at UCLA, New Jersey is America’‘s sixth most segregated state for black students and the seventh most segregated for Latino students. Such segregation prevents not only hundreds of thousands of minority students, but the entire country from realizing their full potential. The scope of this paper is to analyze selected New Jersey public high schools, understand why they are segregated, and suggest policies to promote greater integration, as well as higher quality education.
