African Americans' Continuing Struggle for Quality Education in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Bonds, Michael; Farmer-Hinton, Raquel L.; Epps, Edgar G.
Journal of Negro Education, v78 n1 p55-69 Win 2009
This article summarizes African Americans' ongoing struggle for quality education in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by utilizing school district data and secondary sources. The historic integration effort in the Milwaukee Public Schools system is outlined and the impact of sustained segregation, in the midst of significant changes to Milwaukee's social and economic context, is discussed. The historic integration movement and the social and economic context are used to contextualize and critique current racially segregated choice programs, which have been touted as remedies for inferior educational opportunities in Milwaukee. (Contains 4 tables.)
