School Segregation Study

You see in Thursday's show how one high school's segregation experiment worked out – and what kinds of controversy it caused.  A key difference from the actual 20th-century segregation:  Students at Schlagle High School who were considered "dark-skinned" got all the privileges in their school's recent exercise.

What did you think of this event?  How would this go over at your school?  Do you think this was an effective way to show students how segregation made people feel, or did it do more harm than good, causing a racial rift?  We're looking forward to your comments!
