Resegregation: A Second Generation School Desegregation Issue.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Educational Equity Group. Desegregation Studies Div.
The emphases of this paper are identification of system mechanisms and processes employed to achieve and enhance racial resegregation in education, placing an understanding of these mechanisms and processes within the context of the national desegregation efforts, presentation of the rationale for the National Institute of Education including resegregation as a program effort within the Desegregation Studies Unit, review of current research findings and analyses in the areas of resegregation, and presentation of NIE priorities in this area. Some of the processes which facilitate resegregation are considered to be white flight, the disproportionate use of suspensions and expulsions against minority students, tracking, grouping on a racial basis, the use of test scores, and the mechanism of pushing out minority students and educators from the school system. Key researchable questions in the areas of white flight, suspensions and expulsions, and testing, tracking, and ability grouping are noted. (Author/AM)
