On May 23, 2019, D.C. Policy Center’s report, Landscape of Diversity in D.C. Public Schools was cited in a commentary on The DC Line on school segregation:

“As we mark the 65th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision that ruled racial school segregation unconstitutional, a new study from the Civil Rights Project at the University of California, Los Angeles finds that segregation for black students is increasing in all regions of the country except for the Midwest. In DC, according to a 2018 report from the D.C. Policy Center, half of public schools had a student body more than 90 percent black. The UCLA study finds that such schools are often marked by “double segregation” — by race and by poverty.”
