In 1954, the Supreme Court made history with Brown v. Board of Education, putting black and white children in the same public school classrooms.  But one UNLV scholar says desegregation wasn’t the great victory everyone thought it was.  Sonya Horsford interviewed eight superintendents who went to segregated schools, and now oversee desegregated districts.  We talk to her about her book, Learning in a Burning House: Educational Inequality, Ideology, and (Dis)Integration.
