New York City is famously liberal and proudly diverse, but its education system continues to be one of the most segregated in the entire country. NY1 anchor Errol Louis has written extensively about school segregation in his column for the Daily News and he joined the Slant podcast on Monday to discuss the issue.

“Segregation is a poison. It poisons everything that it touches,” he said. “This is not new.”

Louis also gives his thoughts on mayoral control of the city’s schools and his role as one of the privileged few journalists with regular access to Mayor Bill de Blasio, thanks to his weekly appearances on “Road to City Hall.” Listen to the interview below.
