Author Tim Deroche (A Fine Line: How Most American Kids Are Kept Out of the Best Public Schools) joins the broadcast to discuss the use of residential addresses to enroll students in public schools to sort children into elite or inferior schools.

Deroche explains what led to his interest in “redlining” in education and how a zip code very often determines a child’s access to a quality school. The conversation also touches on the truth about the “segregation” debates in the education world.
