School segregation is seen to be created and maintained by the intersection and mutual reinforcement of a number of factors. The four factors examined in this project are school secessions, funding, private school enrollment, and residential segregation. Each of these factors are seen to have heavy influence on school segregation in the modern day and are seen to reinforce one another creating a permanence of segregation within education.
