Beyond Desegregation: The Politics of Quality in African American Schooling. New Frontiers in Urban Education Series.
Shujaa, Mwalimu J., Ed.
School desegregation strategies are examined in political contexts to focus on the politics of quality schooling for African Americans. Through this approach, racialized uses of power in white self-interest are shown to influence policy making and policy implementation related to education. Essays include: (1) "Reclaiming Historical Visions of Quality Schooling: The Legacy of Early 20th-Century Black Intellectuals" (William H. Watkins); (2) "The Brown Decision Revisited: Mathematizing a Social Problem" (William F. Tate, Gloria Ladson-Billings, and Carl A. Grant); (3) "Only One Oar in the Water: The Political Failure of School Desegregation in Yorkers, New York" (Judith L. Failer, Anna Harvey, and Jennifer Hochschild); (4) "Implementation of Court-Ordered Desegregation by District-Level School Administrators" (Jennifer J. Beaumont); (5) "Promoting Positive Peer Relations in Desegregated Schools" (Janet W. Schofield); (6) "Cultural Ignorance and School Desegregation: A Community Narrative" (Van Dempsey and George Noblit); (7) "Before and After School Desegregation: African American Parents' Involvement in Schools" (Patricia A. Edwards); (8) "High-Quality Schooling for African American Students" (Ronald D. Henderson, and others); (9) "African American Student Leadership: Implications for Quality in College Achievement in the 21st Century" (Carolyn J. Thompson); (10) "Can Institutions Care? Evidence from the Segregated Schooling of African American Children" (Emilie V. Siddle Walker); (11) "The All-Black School: Inherently Unequal or a Culture-Based Alternative?" (Christine J. Faltz and Donald O. Leake); and (12) "School Desegregation, the Politics of Culture, and the Council of Independent Black Institutions" (Mwalimu J. Shujaa and Hannibal T. Afrik).
