A system intended to give parents education options separates students by race, language, and family income.

Choice Is Resegregating Public Schools

Comments from the Judges:

“Extremely well done piece that looked at the many complicated causes of San Francisco school segregation. It was detailed and broad at the same time and looked at the many ironies of how school choice in a liberal city backfired in a way. I like the use of real people from a variety of races and economic levels. And it placed the situation very well in similar national trends. An excellent piece.”

“What a compilation of useful, important and revealing journalism! Bravo to San Fran and their team for this package. LOVED.”
