Race Discrimination in Education: A Legal Perspective.
Ryan, James E.
Teachers College Record, v105 n6 p1087-1118 Aug 2003
Describes the legal definitions of race discrimination in education, demonstrating how they apply in various contexts; highlighting the role of social science evidence; offering suggestions for answering complex questions about what currently counts as racial discrimination in education; and highlighting the irony that, under the current definitions of race discrimination, it is much easier to block voluntary integration efforts designed to assist minorities than practices that unintentionally disadvantage minorities.
