Detracking Schools: Early Lessons from the Field.
Oakes, Jeannie; Lipton, Martin
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n6 p448-54 Feb 1992

Successful detracking requires a reconstructed curriculum, an expanded instructional repertoire, provision for special needs, alternative assessment and grading practices, and a process fostering inquiry, teacher participation, and leadership commitment.
