Reform with Reinvestment: Values and Tensions in Gentrifying Urban Schools
Siegel-Hawley, Genevieve; Thachik, Stefani; Bridges, Kimberly
Education and Urban Society, v49 n4 p403-433 May 2017
As cities across the country experience an influx of White and middle- to upper-class residents, new opportunities for the integration of urban schools emerge. Yet crucial challenges persist even when equity and inclusion are a focus for new stakeholders. This article explores the story of a largely White group of parents committed to investing in and reforming their gentrifying neighborhood's elementary school. Given the numerous tensions that ensued, fostering leadership, equity, and intercultural awareness remains vital to ensuring that the new urban diversity also produces just and inclusive schools.
