Equity Is Not an Option in Public Education.
Fennimore, Beatrice S.
Educational Leadership, v54 n2 p53-55 Oct 1996
The author's experiences as an urban school parent have convinced her that democratic commitments to school equity are central to creating appropriate and fair school choice. Three issues deserve educators' attention: the mixed results of voluntary desegregation programs, political and social agendas affecting public schooling, and the continuing struggle for social and racial justice.
