— A recent report has found segregation in Nassau County’s public schools.
The 55 page, 5 year study examined Nassau County’s public schools and found a persistent pattern of racial and ethical segregation, Newsday reported.
The study’s author called for new policies to support diverse communities, according the report.
The report said that there are fewer predominately white school districts and that minority students are mainly concentrated in high poverty districts. The study went on to that the rather dramatic racial and ethnic distinctions across the school districts have implications for who moves where in Nassau County and how much they pay for their home.
The report was released during a symposium at the Teachers College at Columbia University.
PATERSON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) —
A drug raid at a Paterson, N.J. home unexpectedly uncovered evidence of a large pit bull dog-fighting ring that apparently was being run out of the residence.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, of the 25 dogs that were found in the home on Van Blarcom Street, police said four were dead and stuffed in garbage bags.

Eighteen of the other pit bulls are just puppies that authorities said were living in the basement, jammed into crates. Three maimed adult pit bulls were also rescued from the home.
Paterson Animal Control Officer John Decando told the Bergen Record it was one of the largest dog fighting rings he’s seen.
Police believe the dogs were being trained to fight. One room allegedly had blood-stained walls.
