Examining the Socio-Cultural Dimension of Schooling in a Racially Integrated School
Huidor, Ofelia; Cooper, Robert
Education and Urban Society, v42 n2 p143-167 2010
This article examines the experiences of 20 students of color who voluntarily attend a racially integrated school. The study draws from the Socio-Cultural dimension of schooling as a framework to understand how the students of color fared on a social, cultural, and environmental level within a predominantly White school. Through a questionnaire, African American and Latina/o students discussed the conditions and perceptions of their local schools, their experiences at the new school site, and the value of navigating the educational opportunities offered by participating in a voluntary integration program. Furthermore, based on the findings that emerged from this study, recommendations with implications for policy are discussed. (Contains 4 tables and 8 notes.)
