Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Opposes Effort to Eliminate Racial Diversity in Kentucky Public Schools

We reject efforts by Kentucky lawmakers to dismantle programs that have helped contribute to racial and socio-economic diversity at public schools. H.B. 151 would lead to unnecessary resegregation and turn the clock back on years of work and effort to achieve the goals underlying Brown vs. Board of Education. We must continue to champion principles of diversity that lie at the heart of our democracy.
