2017 Fair Housing Trends Report
If there is one key thing to be learned from this report, it is that we did not get here by accident. By “here,” we mean a nation segregated largely along racial and ethnic lines, with opportunities in abundance in some communities and severely or wholly lacking in others. Children do not go to lower quality schools by choice or eat unhealthy food because that is what they like. Children go to different quality schools and eat different quality food because that is what is available to them. Segregated communities do not exist by accident. Disparities in opportunity do not exist by accident.
