Associated Press file

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos speaks during a dinner hosted by the Washington Policy Center, in Bellevue, Wash. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights says inequality and segregation persist in American schools. A study by the commission finds that low-income, black and Latino students too often end up in schools with crumbling walls, old textbooks and unqualified teachers. The commission is calling for a boost in federal education spending, changing school funding models and investing in housing.
