Public Schools

In May of 1954, sixty years ago, the Supreme Court ruled in the Brown v. Board of Education that schools could not be segregated. Separate but equal was no longer valid.

Ten years later, while in the Navy, I spent eighteen weeks at Naval Air Station Glynco in Glynn County, Georgia from January to Memorial Day learning how to maintain a radar system. Brunswick is the largest community in Glynn Co.

I was either surprised or shocked while there to find out that all of the public schools were closed and the white children went to private academies.

Fast forward 50 years to 2014 and we still have whites only private schools and either no public schools or grossly under funded public schools in this country.

Sad. Very sad.
