On the Wrong Track.
Black, Susan
Executive Educator, v14 n12 p46-49 Dec 1992

Tracking allows schools to practice in-school segregation and perpetuate unequal opportunities and unequal socialization within classrooms. Jonathan Kozol's investigation shows how some schools devalue and intentionally debase an entire stratum of their community. (16 references) (MLH)
