Leveling the Playing Field: An Urban School System Examines Equity in Access to Mathematics Curriculum.
Stone, Carolyn
Urban Review, v30 n4 p295-307 Dec 1998
Assessed the assignment of students in an urban system to ninth-grade mathematics courses against a meritocratic definition of fairness to determine whether the process denied access to students from particular segments of society. Results with 1611 students show that entrance to the gatekeeper mathematics courses was unfairly denied for low socioeconomic status students. (SLD)
