Race-Class Relations and Integration in Secondary Education: The Case of Miller High. Secondary Education in a Changing World
Eick, Caroline
Palgrave Macmillan
Eick explores the history of a comprehensive high school from the world views of its assorted student body, confronting issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, nationality, and religion. Her case study examines the continuities and differences in student relationships over five decades. While she discusses the "dark side" of the high school experience, she also presents hopeful signs and alternatives. This history comes alive through rich oral testimonies that contribute to the ongoing search to make high school life a meaningful and constructive experience for young people living in an increasingly complex society.
