New York ranks as fourth-most segregated city in America.
This was on 'The Real Deal' a New York City real estate site where you'd think they'd be saying nothing but good stuff about the city. You see various lists of such rankings. They all differ. But New York is certainly segregated. Therefore, so are its schools. That always indicates quality disparities. And literacy doesn't happen like it should in such a system. Not just because the races don't go to school with each other, but because a city so accepting of segregated schools can't be trying as hard as it can to make the best school system for all the kids. It doesn't even keep the public libraries open in the evening or on Sunday.
