Overturning Brown by School choice, widely touted as a system that would ensure underprivileged youth have an equal opportunity in education, has grown in popularity in the past fifteen years. The strategies and rhetoric of school choice, however, resemble those of segregationists who closed public schools and funded private institutions to block African American students from integrating with their white peers in the wake of the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision. In Overturning Brown, Steve Suitts examines the parallels between de facto segregationist practices and the modern school choice movement. He exposes the dangers lying behind the smoke and mirrors of the so-called civil rights policies of Betsy DeVos and the education privatization lobbies. Economic and educational disparities have expanded rather than contracted in the years following Brown, and post-Jim Crow discriminatory policies drive inequality and poverty today. Suitts deftly reveals the risk that America and its underprivileged youth face as school voucher programs funnel public funds into predominantly white and often wealthy private schools and charter schools.

Technology Segregation by Technology segregation is an ongoing practice within early childhood programs in the United States. This research, which includes two qualitative studies in the Northeast, reveals that school segregation and technology segregation are one in the same. Utilizing critical race theory, as the theoretical framework, this research finds that young Black children are denied technological access directly affecting their learning trajectories. PTO fundraising and other monetary donations to public schools vary by district and neighborhood and are based on segregation. Therefore, structural racism flourishes within these early childhood programs as black students are excluded from another important content area and practice. This book defines the problem of technology segregation in terms of policy, racial hierarchies, funding, residential segregation, and the digital divide. It challenges the racist framework and reveals disruptions (strategies) to counter this deficit discourse based on white supremacy.
