Five decades after Boston's bitter battles over busing helped stall the push for school desegregation, the issue is once again a policy priority in Massachusetts. What happened? Chalk it up to a generational shift, a racial reckoning, and a long-overdue acknowledgment that addressing the problem of Massachusetts’ increasingly segregated schools will also require tackling housing and transportation issues. Special guests: State Senator Brendan Crighton and METCO CEO Milly Arbaje-Thomas.
