Unique York Metropolis, one among primarily probably the most demographically varied areas on this planet, is moreover dwelling to 1 of primarily probably the most segregated faculty districts in The US. That distinction has rattled Unique York’s self-image and given upward thrust to predominant integration efforts over the past a great deal of years. Most include failed. And throughout The US, desegregation has by no method been tried at scale, partly as a consequence of resistance from white liberals.

Impressed by the unencumber of a model new podcast from Serial and The Unique York Cases, “Good White Of us,” we introduced collectively a panel of 5 specialists to speak concerning the obstacles to integration in Unique York and someplace else, and the methods a few of us are origin to rethink its value and coronary heart of consideration on empowering Unlit and Latino people who include so on the general been not famous of the controversy about their possess youthful of us’s educations.

We requested: Why is integration a speaking stage, nonetheless not however a political precedence, in such a proudly liberal metropolis? What does consider repeat us about why integration works, and what does historic earlier cloak about why it so hardly ever succeeds? And might this second of profound societal upheaval really alternate anything about how our schools work?

Tiffani Torres is a rising faculty freshman at Georgetown School and a most contemporary graduate of Skedaddle Extreme School in Ny.

Richard Buery is the president of Success First, a community of constitution schools throughout the Northeast.

Chana Joffe-Walt is a reporter and producer at This American Life, and the host of “Good White Of us,” a model new podcast from Serial and The Unique York Cases.

Sonya Douglass Horsford is a professor at Columbia School’s Lecturers School.

DANA GOLDSTEIN There’s a sturdy and lengthening physique of consider that moderately conclusively demonstrates the advantages of integration. Now we include recognized given that 1960s that Unlit and Latino college students who attend built-in schools with a foremost white inhabitants include further accumulate admission to to the humanities, to extra contemporary textbooks, to raised extracurricular alternate options.

We moreover know that by system of educational achievement, highschool commencement fees, lower participation throughout the jail justice machine, and moreover grownup earnings, these low-earnings college students and college students of coloration who attended built-in schools on the general include higher outcomes on every a type of measures, whereas white and heart-class college students who attend built-in schools on the general elevate out not expertise unwanted effects.

Certainly, there’s really attention-grabbing sociological consider on the abet to white and heart-class college students of attending schools that are further racially and economically varied. It seems to be to be to include a real prolonged-length of time impression on their social beliefs, their tolerance in opposition to variety, their willingness to are residing in additional varied neighborhoods and their pleasure about sending their possess youthful of us to built-in schools.

SONYA DOUGLASS HORSFORD I might perhaps announce most of us really elevate out toughen and favor built-in schools. Nonetheless we haven’t been able to take away built-in schools because you in fact should favor integration to succeed and be intriguing to supply one thing as loads as attain success.

So whereas there was intensive consider documenting the factors that Dana made about one of the vital advantages by system of feat outcomes as a outcomes of proximity to whiteness, I merely don’t know that make of integration or that proof speaks to the methods whereby desegregated areas can variety adversarial environments for youthful of us of coloration. We’re seeing elevated proof of such hostility throughout the model new second.

RICHARD BUERY One thing I’ve heard my confederate announce, which resonates for me, is that the devices we exhaust to assault segregation are so noteworthy smaller than the devices we outdated to create it. So it’s not so noteworthy that desegregation has ever failed, it’s that we’ve by no method really tried.

While you secret agent over the 100-365 days historic earlier of our nation, all the best way by the extended size, even after Brown vs. Board of Schooling, nothing really came about assorted than in Minute Rock itself and some assorted cities.

So that you simply simply might properly perhaps merely consider this 20 years or so in American historic earlier of dinky desegregation efforts, and likewise you consider that to 400 years of Unlit of us in The US. Desegregation has failed as a result of The US has not really tried. And the rationale no individual in The US has really tried is as a result of, I mediate, the majority of People normally are not really enraged about integration.

They anguish sending their youthful of us to varsity with Unlit and Latino youthful of us, or as a result of they anguish sharing sources with these college students, and/or as a result of they mediate about schooling really as a 0-sum sport and anguish that, If I elevate out one thing that expands alternative for some assorted child, my baby might endure of their accumulate admission to to privilege or accumulate admission to to alternate options or accumulate admission to to sources. And most people normally are not intriguing to menace their possess youthful of us for his or her values and beliefs.

ELIZA SHAPIRO Dana, can you announce one of the vital belongings you realized when reporting about resistance to integration in areas like Montgomery County, Md., and San Francisco?

GOLDSTEIN A busing notion in suburban Baltimore, a notion to allow further Unlit and Latino college students to build up admission to gifted and proficient schooling in Montgomery County, Md., and a kind machine for schools in San Francisco include been alleged to magically result in integration. Nonetheless, really, they led to neighborhoods that include been further built-in than the universities in them. As you admire, white and Asian households outdated the selection machine to guide apparent of the faculty down the block and as an totally different cluster in a tiny group of coveted schools.

My conclusion was much like 1 of many factors Chana makes throughout the podcast, which is that unintended integration is not a type of integration that’s very seemingly to work for Unlit and brown and low-earnings youthful of us. On account of white and privileged people who hump into varied areas with out believing that it is very important be part of an equal, varied neighborhood of parents and college students pause up making an are attempting to mould these schools to the abet of their possess youthful of us above all others. And it merely happens over and as soon as over once more.

SHAPIRO Wealthy, can you talk quickly about what it was are making an are attempting to be one among many only a few Unlit college students at Stuyvesant Extreme School, a really honest appropriate faculty in Unique York Metropolis, help throughout the early 1980s?

BUERY I went to coronary heart faculty in Bushwick, which is an examination faculty which served totally Unlit and Latino college students on the time. Going to Stuyvesant was a tradition shock for me. Keep in mind, this was the 1980s, so Stuyvesant, although it was not varied by any stretch, was enormously further varied than it’s now. There include been many further Unlit and Latino college students than there are really.

It was a deeply disorienting expertise from a lens of depart, from a lens of sophistication. I unruffled to in the interim battle with one of the vital fright that I developed, the impostor syndrome, the stereotype menace, which I mediate include been all sparked at Stuyvesant. And the microaggressions from of us nowadays, who I take away in concepts my pals, who requested me, elevate out I mediate I received into Harvard as a consequence of affirmative movement? I unruffled elevate these things with me.

There was no effort at Stuyvesant to mediate of what it might be like for a Unlit child from East Unique York to return to that faculty, and to make sure that it was a in fact built-in ambiance that supported members of all races. The true truth of the matter is that on this metropolis, it’s repeatedly integration on white of us’s phrases.

I do know that so noteworthy of who I’m and the put I’ve gotten in life comes from the privilege of attending Stuyvesant, the vogue it prepared me academically, the vogue it educated me concerning the enviornment, the vogue it launched me into elite personal faculty schooling. On the equivalent time, it might be sturdy to announce an expertise as a reaffirming expertise.

For me it represents a foundational failure of our metropolis. Specialised excessive schools are merely emblematic of the outrageous model of a systemic declare. Why did our metropolis proceed to rely so deeply on admissions necessities like grades and checks for aggressive schools after we all know the discriminatory impression they include? It might per likelihood supreme be as a result of we don’t mediate that Unlit college students and Latino college students are as pretty as assorted college students, that they deserve as noteworthy as assorted college students.

GOLDSTEIN I used to be part of a desegregation program and was bused in a city throughout the Hudson Valley referred to as Ossining, N.Y. And all the best way by my teenage years, and into faculty, I thought to be it to be one among primarily probably the most sure and nice features of my life. I really strongly recognized as a white one which benefited from attending an built-in faculty, by publicity to of us whose backgrounds include been not much like mine, by having a further varied group of pals.

After I turned an schooling reporter, then over once more, I mirrored loads on how poorly integration had labored for thus a type of my classmates of coloration. We include been a city that had an awfully massive Unlit and Latino inhabitants, and however the developed placement faculty tune that I used to be on was overwhelmingly white. I had per likelihood two Unlit lecturers my full schooling. I don’t mediate I had any Latino lecturers.

So I mediate anyone who immerses themselves for years in these questions goes to return out with a noteworthy further nuanced stage of view on it. Nonetheless I elevate out in a roundabout way unruffled secure the empirical proof in toughen of integration really compelling.

DOUGLASS HORSFORD It wasn’t until I began finding out desegregation after I really turned enraged about my possess tutorial expertise and being bused throughout the sixth grade. And so proper right here in Clark County, the put Las Vegas is situated, we now include the fifth largest faculty district throughout the nation, nonetheless an awfully tiny African-American inhabitants. In 1968, the NAACP challenged the Clark County School District for affirming intentionally segregated schools, in Kelly v. Mason. And the courtroom present in need of the NAACP.

Nonetheless then it required this very tiny inhabitants of Unlit college students to be bused to assorted substances of the county, into west Las Vegas. And it required that assorted college students, white college students predominantly — I used to be included in that as a result of I lived outside of west Las Vegas — to be bused into the historic African-American neighborhood for one 365 days.

Nonetheless I by no method really seen my expertise as detrimental. I had a varied group of pals, in holding with the put I stayed. I had publicity and experiences with people whose background was assorted than mine. We moreover shared a type of issues in major. And I really really feel that, on this second, as an totally different of coronary heart of consideration on the issues that we elevate out portion in major, we’re so obsessed and centered on the issues that differentiate us.

SHAPIRO Tiffani, you had major grades in coronary heart faculty. You then utilized to Eleanor Roosevelt Extreme School, a selective faculty on the Higher East Side that has a geographic desire for admission. Nonetheless you didn’t meet that desire, because you might properly additionally very successfully be residing faraway from Ny, in Brownsville, a largely low-earnings neighborhood in Brooklyn. How did you in fact really feel about getting rejected from what was at one time your dream faculty?

TIFFANI TORRES I believed the project had been marketed to me as supply alternative, the put if I labored sturdy all the best way by coronary heart faculty and received appropriate grades — and I did — then there was no cause I shouldn’t be able to attend any of the universities throughout the metropolis. That’s what I thought.

After which I didn’t accumulate a seat at any really honest appropriate highschool. I did not discover lots of the matter materials that was on the check out in the slightest degree. My people further or a lot much less noticed it as, OK, she is going to be capable of get appropriate grades so she’s prepared for anything that the faculty machine has to throw at her. Nonetheless I noticed that that wasn’t the case.

I’m a main-generation scholar. I’m Dominican Latina. My people got here proper right here throughout the ’70s, in an awfully assorted time. And as properly they include very assorted views than I elevate out on integration and what it method to be a main-generation scholar throughout the faculty machine and what it method to hump to varsities that are majority Unlit and Hispanic.

What they noticed was that white of us didn’t are residing in our communities. Nonetheless white of us include been a success. And as properly they include been further afraid of my future than I used to be as a result of they noticed that. On account of I wasn’t in areas the put white of us lived or the put they went to varsity, they shy I wouldn’t be a success.

Nonetheless I’m very glad that I didn’t hump to Eleanor Roosevelt. I connect in concepts a couple of years in the past a scholar was handed a tampon with the N-notice written throughout it. She was, I mediate, one among many appropriate Unlit college students in her grade. And the faculty itself is majority white college students. I in fact include by no method lengthy earlier to a school that wasn’t majority Unlit and Latinx college students, or the put there wasn’t a majority of scholars who qualify free of charge or reduced-impress lunch like me.

SHAPIRO It’s a good distance principal, as Tiffani has recognized, that Mayor Invoice de Blasio has largely averted utilizing the discover segregation to announce the disclose of Unique York Metropolis schools, which we all know are, really, segregated. He has as an totally different outdated the discover variety.

Chana, can you repeat us the way you’ve method to realize the difference between integration and type, equality and fairness?

CHANA JOFFE-WALT One ingredient that I really got here away with from even merely the primary 365 days I spent reporting throughout the faculty, the put the faculty noticed this gigantic influx of advantaged white households in a single 365 days, was merely how dinky our language is or how intentionally imprecise our language is in speaking about integration. Inside that faculty 365 days, variety was outdated to announce what was occurring to the faculty: That this huge group of white households was coming in, and it was turning appropriate right into a varied neighborhood.

Nonetheless that discover gave the impression a stand-in which means assorted issues to assorted of us. So that you simply simply might properly hear white households speaking about making an are attempting to be part of a varied faculty. For them, varied appeared to announce the actual fact that the faculty had Unlit and Latinx youthful of us in it. Households of coloration would announce the entire variability coming in, referring to the white youthful of us. Some include been enraged this could indicate further sources coming to the faculty. Others noticed it as a menace that their faculty might properly be taken over.

I mediate there was moreover a scarcity of readability when the faculty was being deliberate throughout the early 1960s throughout the guts of the faculty integration circulation in Unique York Metropolis. The universities include been de facto segregated. Nonetheless the Board of Ed would not announce the discover segregation as a result of, I mediate, segregation implied intent and moreover accountability. So if the universities include been segregated, then it was the fault of the establishment that runs the universities and the accountability of that establishment to restore it. So the Board of Ed would talk about racial imbalance or racial separation.

Integration advocates, and Unlit and Puerto Rican people and organizers then talked about integration as a instrument to build up admission to the entire issues that white youthful of us throughout the metropolis already had accumulate admission to to — to expert lecturers, to cheap class sizes and functioning bogs. And the Board of Ed, as an totally different, talked about this considered coming collectively in racial unity and that integration was not a resolve for injustice. They include been utilizing the discover the vogue that we exhaust the discover variety nowadays.

So I mediate that you simply simply might properly secret agent that even help throughout the 1960s, Unlit people really talked about integration as a method to an pause. Nonetheless the Board of Ed and white people talked about integration as a benefit in and of itself.

SHAPIRO That brings me to a foundational ask: Who’s integration really for? Can we now include varied schools to build up white of us really really feel a lot much less accountable? Or will we now include integration to dismantle buildings of systemic racism that include excluded Unlit and Latino youthful of us from having accumulate admission to to all that public schooling can present them?

DOUGLASS HORSFORD I mediate the combination dialog is further of a dialog that’s occurring amongst people who accumulate pleasure from some extent of privilege — good white people. The put is the groundswell of real-integration efforts and toughen led by Unlit and assorted disenfranchised communities? I merely don’t secret agent it coming from the households that integration is meant to abet.

Integration is not any longer the largest declare for Unlit households. Presently time, Unlit people are shy about whether or not or not their youthful of us might be secure — whether or not as a consequence of Covid or violence on campuses or abominate crimes or police brutality. On this second, speaking about integration looks like such a distraction.

JOFFE-WALT After I began the podcast, I took the need for varsity integration as a given. I thought of it each from my possess stage of view, with some sentimental concepts about the advantages of variety, and making an are attempting that for my possess youthful of us. I moreover thought integration seems to be to be like an apparent goal as a consequence of the empirical proof we’ve mentioned. Nonetheless moreover, segregation is anathema to the American promise. Environment aside of us by races is caste. So it gave the impression like integration was an apparent appropriate.

I mediate that what has modified for me is that I walked by the historic earlier of a faculty the put integration has been invoked over and as soon as over once more as a benefit, and outdated as a cause to pursue insurance coverage insurance policies and applications that abet white people, that abet advantaged people — and that didn’t really shift vitality all the best way by the faculty. After that, I began to include some doubts.

There include been so many methods whereby the faculty machine and white people maintained segregation throughout the faculty by creating separate tutorial tracks, by clustering in sure schools, or by hoarding sources. And I used to be particularly struck by how this was appropriate when white households include been inside of the faculty I profiled all the best way by that first episode.

So I mediate it’s further necessary to speak about depart and vitality in additional bid phrases, and to speak about this historic earlier. I mediate of us like me should reckon with what our legacy is with public schools and to really ask what we indicate after we announce that we’re striving to realize integration, or variety, or regardless of discover we exhaust.

SHAPIRO Wealthy, you oversaw an initiative when you happen to include been at Metropolis Corridor to try out to build up further Unlit male lecturers into metropolis schools. I do know at KIPP and at Success First, you possibly can include really put an emphasis on having a staff that looks like the youthful of us that they attend. Why is it necessary for Unlit college students to include Unlit lecturers?

BUERY After I was at Metropolis Corridor, about 40 % of our college students include been Unlit or Latino males and about eight % of our lecturers include been Unlit and Latino males. I had supreme two Unlit male lecturers all the best way by my full public schooling occupation, each in coronary heart faculty.

Over the previous couple of years, we’ve seen really compelling consider throughout the sure impression that having even one instructor of coloration can include on the tutorial trajectory of Unlit college students. And moreover how few kids even include publicity to Unlit lecturers, particularly male lecturers of coloration.

Nonetheless there are all types of obstacles, together with regulatory obstacles harking back to instructor licensing checks in loads of states that disproportionately exclude of us of coloration, even though there might be tiny or no proof that your accumulate on these checks impacts the standard of instruction.

SHAPIRO I needed to dig into this ask about what we talk about after we talk about sources. In a type of methods we’re speaking about fund-elevating and the vitality that includes fund-elevating prowess. All individuals is acutely aware of that faculties throughout Unique York Metropolis, as an illustration, include radically assorted P.T.A. annual fund-elevating totals yearly.

Dana has written about this considered pooling P.T.A. donations throughout schools and districts and had a out of the extraordinary story a couple of years in the past concerning the controversy such pooling reputation off off in Southern California. Some people said they did not favor their donations going to assorted youthful of us’s schools. Are you able to talk about what you discovered there and whether or not you specialise throughout the foundation will include a shot in assorted areas?

GOLDSTEIN The miserable ingredient is that in Santa Monica and Malibu, which is the district that attempted the P.T.A. pooling, it type of added gasoline to the fireside of this simmering circulation for the Malibu part of the district, which is the whiter, wealthier part, to secede, really. And we’ve seen these secession actions throughout the nation.

So I don’t know how hopeful I’m that it’s also averted an infinite amount of controversy in assorted areas as successfully. Nonetheless I used to be impressed with one of the vital concrete and pragmatic issues I noticed that the pool donation machine was able to elevate out.

It bought issues like an exquisite arts program, a drama program, a telescope for astronomy for the scholars. It was one thing they include been able to elevate out for the reason that total district was varied even though there was unruffled some segregation all the best way by the faculty buildings themselves and throughout the constructing. We’re largely speaking a couple of program that was alleged to abet low-earnings Latino households and the universities their youthful of us attended.

I mediate it might be enormously controversial in Unique York Metropolis. After I checked out the info on the richest P.T.A.s throughout the nation, a type of them are in areas just like the Higher West Side, the Higher East Side, the Village, brownstone Brooklyn. So telling these people that some sure share of what you give is per likelihood not to your child’s faculty goes to be enormously controversial proper right here.

SHAPIRO I’d be remiss not to inquire of concerning the upward thrust of these dwelling-training pods. We’re listening to a type of anecdotes about white households with method who issue of their youthful of us do not should endure by one different 365 days of distant finding out. And as properly they’re getting collectively and, in some circumstances, taking their youthful of us out of the general public faculty machine, per likelihood hiring lecturers far from the general public faculty machine.

And it strikes me that these pods, even throughout the occasion that they’re a tiny mannequin, repeat us a beautiful amount about how unintended segregation happens by effectively-meaning people who merely don’t favor their youthful of us to lose out.

DOUGLASS HORSFORD As a dad or mum, I mediate people are going to raise out what they mediate is throughout the supreme passion of their youthful of us. I don’t consider that investing in options that may are attempting and alternate their conduct round that goes to work.

I indicate, merely to be true, throughout the tradition that we’re residing in, it’s about individualism. It’s about getting the higher hand. You might per likelihood include of us writing letters for kindergarten college students in Unique York Metropolis to build up appropriate right into a kindergarten program. So I mediate we merely have to be actual trying about that, the tradition that we’re residing in, and what historic earlier has proven us.

Nonetheless I mediate the ask for me is how must unruffled people who could not include the method, nonetheless include the wherewithal, can variety their possess tutorial networks and communities to alleviate all of them the best way by the pandemic — and past. In declare that’s what I’ve been giving thought to — and to how educators and neighborhood organizations might very successfully be working at once with people and households to fulfill these needs.

The focus needs to be shifting, for these that are centered on justice, from fairness to emancipation. That method for college kids of coloration, for immigrant college students, for others who include been marginalized throughout the U.S. faculty machine, to ogle the machine that they’re in and to launch as loads as mediate of methods to liberate themselves from that.

SHAPIRO We’re throughout the guts of this gigantic reckoning over depart and justice. And we don’t really know how this circulation goes to trickle all the way down to varsities. To wrap up, I might perhaps love all individuals to speak about whether or not you in fact really feel any optimism that this style of reckoning might alternate anything about how whether or not faculty districts work for fairness.

JOFFE-WALT I used to be studying one thing the various day about how each article about reopening schools reaches a stage the put it talks concerning the necessity for federal funds and for funding. And that we’re all really failed by the shortcoming of planning and funding and coordination throughout all of our public methods. We’re all harmed by the shortcoming of funding in public establishments. I’m not very hopeful that it’s going to hump throughout the route of additional equitable schools.

We’re all harmed by the shortcoming of funding in public establishments nonetheless we’re not all harmed throughout the equivalent system. We don’t all include the equivalent alternate selections available to us by system of filling in gaps the put our public methods fail. If we connect not include any collective response to this disaster, and if we don’t demand management and durable public establishments then sure, inequities will accumulate worse.

GOLDSTEIN After I was watching the George Floyd protests, I used to be noticing that just about the entire white neighborhoods the put a type of white liberals include been out collaborating in Unlit Lives Matter demonstrations include been one of the vital equivalent neighborhoods that resisted faculty integration. And that crammed me with a type of despair. I’m not apparent when these of us throughout the road are going to grapple with resistance to insurance coverage insurance policies like integrating schools and constructing cheap housing.

I then wanted to hide the information that tens of millions of the nation’s youthful of us are going to be finding out on-line throughout the tumble. And that led a type of my friends and so many socioeconomically privileged people of all races to speak about fleeing the general public machine into so-known as finding out pods. Or to comprise the premise that after you happen to pay a personal faculty tuition, you might properly additionally very successfully be further seemingly to build up in-particular individual schooling this 365 days. So after I take away in concepts all of these things, I don’t really really feel particularly hopeful.

I elevate out, then over once more, mediate that one of the vital households that are collaborating in segregating practices, like the total personal podding ingredient, normally are not lower than speaking about and acknowledging the impression of their choices. That’s a step ahead from the put we’d include been a 365 days in the past, ahead of the pandemic and ahead of George Floyd.

BUERY I disclose I’m of two minds proper right here. Reasonably then the pandemic itself, the crises that we face nowadays normally are not really new. Racial oppression is clearly not new, together with in schools, which include been in so many methods designed to be the units of oppression. And public well being has been a disaster for Unlit of us for generations.

So on the one hand, I’m not hopeful. Traditionally, merely as a result of there was a big dislocation doesn’t on the general resolve to the abet of of us with out vitality. It’s not like we received further wealth equality after the ’08 financial disaster.

Nonetheless on the various hand, I moreover understand that the general large modifications in our society probably gave the impression not attainable on the various side of the alternate. I mediate hope is a self-discipline. On account of hope is a gasoline that retains you working. So I mediate I’m hopeful. Nonetheless I mediate you get up each morning and likewise you pressure your self to be hopeful.

And I might announce one closing ingredient that affords me gasoline. Not to put her on the put of dwelling, nonetheless it certainly’s of us like Tiffani. After I’m going out and secret agent marches, it’s really the vitality of youthful these which include been on the forefront of each circulation for social alternate on this nation and who’re throughout the forefront of this circulation.

TORRES Thanks, Richard. I really really feel like I’m merely getting began. And there include been a type of disappointments, I mediate, particularly this 365 days.

I’m going sooner or later to be prepared the put I’ll alternate one thing. And I mediate that I’m not essentially hopeful throughout the sense that I mediate each factor will alternate in a single day. On account of clearly, that gained’t happen. I do know that there are going to be a type of people who oppose the circulation for racial and tutorial fairness.

Nonetheless I’m hopeful throughout the sense that I mediate that there might be progress. I’m hopeful as a result of I do know that I’ll alternate one thing. And I’ve seen that already occurring, not merely with myself, nonetheless moreover with assorted college students whose experiences are at the moment being elevated.

DOUGLASS HORSFORD Neatly, I’m very hopeful, really. And I mediate it’s as a result of I’ve been beating this drum for a minute. And I really really feel just like the consciousness is altering round these factors.

I’m moreover very impressed by the work of kids like Tiffani and even my youthful of us, and by merely seeing how this second has ignited their activism and their boldness. They’re merely not going to put up with issues in methods that even I did.

I mediate that we merely should make sure that we’re really supporting kids and giving them the devices and the area and the sources to interact in that activism. And that we proceed to really coronary heart of consideration on sources and illustration. Nonetheless we’ve received to moreover return to the political area, the political dimension of all of this, and make sure that we’re collaborating in political participation, voting, electing people who portion our dedication to fairness and justice, and toughen them in doing their work. And with that we will accumulate by this.
