To Track or Not to Track: Curricular Differentiation and African American Students at Highview High School
Chambers, Terah Talei Venzant; Huggins, Kristin Shawn; Scheurich, James Joseph
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n1 p38-50 2009
This article explores tracking and its effect on African American students at Highview High School, a racially and socioeconomically diverse, first-ring suburban school. Mary Johnson, a White assistant principal, is troubled by the existence of racially identifiable course enrollment patterns and knows that meaningful change will only occur if a plan is created that appeals to everyone. The question remains: Should tracking continue in some form or be abolished completely? This study enables students to understand the implications of informal policies on various student populations and design comprehensive intervention strategies to address stratification due to tracking in their own schools.
