Well, the term "segregated" can have different meanings for different people. Your teacher doesn't have the same perspective as you do, which is why maybe he's saying that. Now, segregated usually implies race, but you also have to consider the demographic of your area. For example, my school is mostly white but we live in a mostly white area. I'd check out statistics and then try and come up with a logical argument.

So if your school is segregated try to switch things up. Venture onto the "other side", put yourself out there and mix in with the group. It might just upset the student body or have them do the same thing as you.

I guess you have a problem at your school, but you should write more about it. People cant help you if you dont give them enough information.
