Genevieve Siegel-Hawley is real smart, and here’s the column I’ve been looking for on Virginia’s return to segregation academies via Governor Youngkin’s push to expand charter schools.

Effectively recreating dual systems of schooling — a hallmark of the pre-Brown era — by increasing neovouchers and charter schools in Virginia is problematic for all of us. Siphoning substantial funding away from our woefully underresourced, overstretched regular public schools doubles down on separate and unequal schooling for the students left behind. And white, segregated charter and private schools will receive government support to ill-educate future citizens for a multiracial society.
