Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Mix it up with whom?



Tb_resegregate_450 At least 50 Tampa Bay area schools are participating Thursday in Mix It Up At Lunch Day, an annual event geared to getting kids to respect and learn from their racial and ethnic differences. But how well can they do that when most of the kids come from the same backgrounds?
