We speak with Dr. David C. Bloomfield, Professor of Education Leadership. Law & Policy at Brooklyn College. David Bloomfield condemns the social Darwinism and “hoarding” mentality of our education systemsHe explains how school resource allocation exacerbates segregation and inequality, a process deliberately abetted by the proliferation of school districts around the country Education policy and financing reinforce an us against them view of schools. Until we start thinking of the nation’s children as our collective responsibility,  we will continue to seek todeprive “other people’s” children in order to benefit “ours,”  thereby impoverishing all of us.
