- Problems of school segregation are even more complex and difficult than those of the past. These problems affect multiple racial /ethnic and linguistic groups, including Hispanics/Latinos.
- Some favorable outcomes of litigation in recent year show some progress toward school desegregation can still be achieved with the help of the courts.
- Desegregation does not guarantee integration, nor ensure full equality of educational opportunity.
- Need to inform parents, educators and policy makers of the reality, the issues, the potential consequences and the unanswered questions about the existing segregation of ethno linguistic minority children in the US schools.
