School Choice for African-American Children Who Live in Poverty: A Commitment to Equity or More of the Same?
Trent, Stanley C.
Urban Education, v27 n3 p291-307 Oct 1992
Argues against the Bush administration's school choice proposal from historical and sociocultural perspectives. The Bush approach to education reform espouses educational excellence without addressing needs of children who are at risk of school failure. Equity for minority groups has never occurred as a by-product of a focus on excellence. (SLD)
