Will budget cuts threaten the future of the Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity? Better known as METCO, it's a voluntary school desegregation program intended to expand educational opportunities for minorities, and reduce racial isolation in Boston, Springfield, and the surrounding suburbs. What's your experience in the program? Should it be kept, cut, or expanded? Leave a comment below, or at our facebook page.

Guests:

Katani Sumner - METCO counselor at Newton South High School, one of the first participants in the METCO program when it started in the late 1960s.


Susan Eaton - reasearch director at the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School, author of "The Other Boston Busing Story", co-author of
an upcoming joint publication of the Houston Institute for Race and Justice and the Pioneer Institute on the history ad effectiveness of the METCO program
