What's in a Number? Commentary on Gorard and Fitz's "Investigating the Determinants of Segregation between Schools."
Gibson, Alex; Asthana, Sheena
Research Papers in Education: Policy and Practice, v15 n2 p133-53 Jun 2000
Critiques the methodology used by Gorard and Fitz in their work on changing levels of social segregation between schools, arguing that their index of segregation does not reveal how patterns of school enrollment have changed over time, challenging their dismissal of the polarization hypothesis, and concluding that notwithstanding Gorard and Fitz's claims, the polarization debate is far from settled.
