They Retard What They Cannot Repel: Examining the Role Teachers Sometimes Play in Subverting Equity-Minded Reforms.
Welner, Kevin G.
Journal of Negro Education, v68 n2 p200-12 Spr 1999
Presents a case study of one school district engaged in a reform designed to reduce ability grouping, noting teachers' and parents' role in undermining equity-minded change. The detracking was prompted by a federal court order as part of a larger desegregation case. Wealthy white parents were disproportionately heard by district policymakers, while low income families were disproportionately absent. (SM)
