Abstract

Education inequality is amongst the most severe types of racial inequalities throughout the United States. Like many other areas of inequality in America, education inequality is deeply correlated with race. As a form of systematic racism, the discrepancy in access to resources and opportunities for Black students in comparison to their White counterparts, leads to inequality outside the walls of a classroom. America was founded by social institutions engrained with bias and imbalance, that still reinforce inequality today. Statistics have repeatedly demonstrated that Black children are more likely to live in low-income neighborhoods with poorer school districts than White children, and thus, exposed to less opportunities and resources. This contributes to the polarization between social classes throughout the country, making it more likely for people to remain in the social class that they were born into. Therefore, Black individuals are more likely to remain of a low socioeconomic status throughout their lifetimes.
