Queremos creer que la palabra 'segregación', en cualquier contexto, es un término del pasado que ya no se utiliza en vocabulario de hoy en día. Pero, desafortunadamente, parece estar más presente que nunca en Pensilvania.

PA schools more segregated than ever, according to study

We want to believe that the word ‘segregation,’ use in any context, is a term of the past that no longer applies to today’s daily vocabulary. But unfortunately it seems to be more present than ever in Pennsylvania.
