FRONTLINE PRESENTS SEPARATE AND UNEQUAL – IS SCHOOL SEGREGATION MAKING A COMEBACK?

frontline

Tonight, FRONTLINE presents Separate and Unequal — a special report from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where a group of mostly white, middle-class citizens, dissatisfied with low-performing schools in their district, are trying to break away and form a new city with its own separate school system.

Critics say breakaway efforts like this one may be reversing hard-fought civil rights gains — but supporters say it’s simply about securing a quality education for their children.

Also this hour: FRONTLINE revisits Omarina Cabrera, a student from the Bronx who took part in a groundbreaking program to stem the dropout crisis in America’s high-poverty high schools.

Where is Omarina today, two years after she first shared her story in Middle School Moment ?
