Is Ability Grouping Equitable?
Gamoran, Adam
Educational Leadership, v50 n2 p11-17 Oct 1992
Recent research suggests that ability grouping and tracking do not increase overall achievement in schools but promote inequality. High-track teachers are more enthusiastic and spend more time preparing lessons, whereas low-track teachers spend more time on behavior management and less on instruction. A sidebar by Cloyd Hastings demands abolition of ability grouping on moral and democratic grounds. (28 references) (MLH)
