From Equal Educational Opportunity to Diversity Advantaged Learning
Hawley, Willis D.
Journal of Negro Education, v76 n3 p250-262 Sum 2007
The case for desegregation has been based largely on research showing its contributions to the educational opportunities and life chances of students of color. However, this has led to remedies that have placed much of the burden of desegregation on people of color and has failed to develop awareness that there are substantial advantages to all students of learning with and from students of different races and ethnicities. The extent of these advantages depend on specified school processes and cultures and, especially, on the quality of instruction that students experience.
