Do We Need to Desegregate All of Our Black Schools?
Leake, Donald O.; Faltz, Christine J.
Educational Policy, v7 n3 p370-87 Sep 1993
Examines fundamental assumptions about desegregation. Briefly discusses Milwaukee's African-American immersion schools as a feasible strategy for educating African-American students. In predominantly African-American schools, African-American students' achievement levels surpass those of their peers in integrated schools. Given the limitations of Milwaukee's desegregation plan, culture-based education offers a feasible alternative for improving urban schools. (Contains 22 references.) (MLH)
