The Integrated Schools Podcast

Ep 2 - The Bordon Family

Episode Summary

The Bordon family from Minneapolis shares their experience sending their daughters to integrating schools.

Episode Notes

We're joined by the Bordon family - Jenny (mom), Scott (dad), and Olivia (10th grade). In choosing a school for their daughters, they started out following the narrative of how people with the privilege of choose a school should go about it. After a conversation with their school district about who has has that privilege and the segregation that results from it, they made a change and sent both of their kids to global majority schools. Many years later, they reflect on that journey and how it has shaped their understanding of race, class, privilege, and education.

We're sad to have missed speaking with Summer Bordon, who was away at college when we taped this episode.
