In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students explore school segregation that currently exists in countries around the world and debate the notion of school segregation. Students then write a persuasive essay in response to the idea of "separate but equal" being inherently unequal, supporting their views with examples of school segregation around the world.
