    The article addressed housing up to 1962 – 68 and addresses school integration in 2007. However, I also remember schools being integrated in San Francisco 1970 – 1976. Students (including myself) were bused to various neighborhoods. I wish the article had included this history and maybe a bit on how/why it stopped. Very informative article…it makes so much sense and things do need to change.
