As public schools have re-segregated, the achievement gap between black and white students has widened. That's a major finding from a forthcoming year-long investigation into southern schools by Pro Publica reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones who yesterday previewed the article on Face the Nation.

Other guests on the program, which assessed failures and progress made: Michael Eric Dyson, Evan Wolfson, and Tavis Smiley.
