The Explanation of Minority School Failure, Again.
McDermott, R. P.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v18 n4 p361-4 Dec 1987

They are limited by their starting assumptions and they are apologies for our present system. Minority school failure and its explanations by social scientists are two levels of the same process that we need to confront. (Author/VM)
