Integration: Dead Horse for the Race?
Ukombozi, Amani na Uwezo ya
The theoretical premises and social science research used to justify integration as a strategy for the improvement of the quality of education of black children are examined in this paper. Literature focusing on the results of integration/desegregation is also reviewed. It is concluded that many of the theoretical premises used to justify the integration model for achievement of quality education for black children are invalid, and that research does not justify a continued emphasis on integration as a viable approach to solving the educational problems of this group. Viable alternatives are suggested for the involvement, on a theoretical and applied level, of black social scientists in the education of black children. (Author/CMG)
