Assessment of Current Knowledge about the Effectiveness of School Desegregation Strategies. Volume V. A Review of the Empirical Research on Desegregation: Community Response, Race Relations, Academic Achievement and Resegregation.
Rossell, Christine; And Others
This literature review considers the impact of desegregation on community response, racial relations, academic achievement and resegregation. Chapter one examines the effectiveness of desegregation plans in reducing racial isolation and white flight, and in promoting a positive community response. Desegregation school practices and effects on intergroup relations among students are discussed in chapter two. A discussion of the effects of desegregation on minority group achievement in reading and language arts, the racial composition of desegregated schools, and implications for desegregation policy are presented in chapter three. The final chapter discusses resegregation as a result of assignment to academic programs, and the impact of discipline practices on resegregation. The relationship of desegregation to assignment procedures such as ability grouping and tracking, and the effect of desegregation on special education, bilingual education and compensatory education programs are also examined. Within each chapter, reference notes and a bibliography are appended. (JCD)
