Re: “Baker's dozen

It is difficult to achieve educational equity when the surrounding neighborhoods were strategically segregated by racially-driven federal housing and homeowner lending policies ("redlining") during the last two-thirds of the Twentieth Century, by Arkansas' failure to adopt the Uniform Landlord Tenant Act (encouraging slum landlords), and by unspoken practices of de facto restrictive covenants against neighborhood racial diversity. As Mr. Baker states, we must all work together, but not only at school. The school is a place to start, but community building there must also be connected to the surrounding neighborhoods, as well
