Keeping Track, Part 1: The Policy and Practice of Curriculum Inequality.
Oakes, Jeannie
Phi Delta Kappan, v68 n1 p12-17 Sep 1986
Results of the "A Study of Schooling" survey indicate that the practice of tracking in secondary schools makes it difficult for schools to achieve either academic excellence or equality of educational opportunities. Tracking, furthermore, forces schools to perpetuate social and economic inequalities. Eight footnotes are appended. (IW)
