Helping Minorities: Education, Jobs, and Housing

  • Frank Koch


Minority education is one of this country’s most pressing problems, because it is only through education that most of the problems of poverty will be overcome and that minority groups will be able to participate fully in (and thus alter) American society. How such education is to take place, however, is not obvious. After fifteen years of government programs and monies, attempts at desegregation, and much discussion, we still do not seem to be significantly closer to the dream of equality in education (and thus racial equality). Test scores in minority communities continue to remain significantly lower than those in white communities, crime and drug abuse in these communities is on the rise, and so on. Even the media seem tired of reporting such problems.
