What do I remember about 1980 from an educational standpoint? Desegregation. The Civil Rights Project at Harvard recently pubished an informative study entitled "New Faces, Old Patterns? Segregation in the Multiracial South". One comment from the report is as follows: "The problem of Latino segregation is severe because there has never been any serious effort to desegregate Latinos and Latino enrollment is growing in states with already large concentrations of Latinos. Even since 2001, the share of Latinos in majority white schools has dropped, especially in states such as Texas, Maryland, Florida, Virginia, Georgia, Delaware and
Louisiana. 21 States such as Texas and Florida that are seeing the fastest growth in Latino
enrollment are also among the states where Latino students experience the greatest segregation. Many of the civil rights cases against Latino segregation were brought to court in Texas where despite a brief period of integration from 1970 to 1980, it was one of the first states to end its urban desegregation plans."
