Nearly 25 years after Denver was allowed to stop the court-ordered busing designed to desegregate its buildings, more than half of the city's public schools are as segregated as they were in the late 1960s, and students complain that others are integrated in name only, with white and Asian students making up the majority of advanced classes.
