Creating Effective Schools.
Pink, William
Educational Forum, v49 n1 p91-107 Fall 1984
One of the major barriers to effective schools is the tracking and ability grouping system, which socializes children to trajectories of failure or success throughout their school lives and adult careers. Since schools play a major role in forging adolescent identity, such a process systematically disadvantages students given negative labels and low status. (SK)
