A World of Difference: The Race-based Educational Divide in Chicago
The School Divide, Source: Australian Associated Press.

Trapped by historical education policies and the unequal distribution of races among communities, the return of the fight for racial education equality has been unsatisfactory. Multiple parties are working toward this, and we need to make immediate relief for their lives.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome, many thanks for your interest!
