Seattle Public Schools

In 1978, district-wide busing began in Seattle public schools, but in recent years these same schools have gone back to being nearly all students of color. The district faces challenges in how it plans to approach integrating in the future. The Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that it could no longer use race as a factor in placing students.  (Photo: David Ryder/Landov/Reuters)
