Initial impression of Atlanta education system

As the urban core of the most-fast growing metropolitan area in United States, Atlanta is one of the largest concertation of the college and university.
And its education system is deeply affected by racial issues. Morehouse College is the only and frist all male black institution of higher learning in America.
During 20th century, the segregation and desegregation had a hot fight about wether letting black students and white students sit in one classroom. In stead of equal education system, the desegregation policies of the school served to hasten white flight out of certain neighborhoods and to concentrate students in predominantly single race schools through the selective use of student transfer procedure.
