Horsford, Sonya Douglass – Educational Policy, 2019
In this article, I consider the limitations of school integration research that overlooks Black research perspectives, White policy interests, and the paradox of race in the New Jim Crow--America's system of racial caste in the post-Civil Rights Era. Applying critical race theory as critical policy analysis, I discuss the importance of theorizing…

Donato, Rubén; Hanson, Jarrod – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Mexican Americans have a long history in the struggle to end school segregation and achieve educational equality. Rubén Donato and Jarrod Hanson trace that history through a series of court cases that show how their fight for desegregation both intersects with and differs from the more well-known struggle of Black Americans. In some cases, Mexican…

Anderson, Jeremy; Frankenberg, Erica – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Sixty-five years after the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education, the federal and judicial role in school desegregation has declined.

Marshall, Tanji Reed – Educational Leadership, 2019
The U.S. Supreme Court's "Brown v. Board" decision brought with it a myriad of unintended consequences. Perhaps most notably, it exposed black students to subpar assignments and deficit thinking. These inequities, in fact, persist today: In one TNTP study, classrooms of mostly white students were 1.5 times more likely to receive…

Chapman, Thandeka K. – Peabody Journal of Education, 2018
The controversial glory of the "Brown" decisions and the retraction of court-ordered reforms represent the limited gains of racial justice in education and the protection of white privilege through law and policy. The return to segregation, as propagated through the rise of racially and economically segregated charter schools, exhibits…

As the 1968 Bilingual Education Act (BEA) reaches its 50th anniversary, we provide a critical historical review of its contradictory origins and legacy.

This article explores the growing interest in schools which are aimed at children and young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning (LGBTQ), schools described as LGBTQ-affirming.

Frankenburg, Erica – Equity Assistance Center Region II, Intercultural Development Research Association, 2018
While some state and local education agencies may raise concerns over shifting legal principles and political apprehension in pursuing strategies that integrate students across race, socioeconomic status, and other factors, the changing demographics warrant serious inquiry into integration opportunities.

We used Latina/Latino Critical Race Theory (LatCrit) to re-analyze survey and interview data from earlier research in which we found that Latina/o students reported less positive experiences than other students in this high school. We found racial injustice in class enrollments, in students' experiences with stereotypes and prejudice, in…

Farinde-Wu, Abiola – Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, 2018
Black female educators played a vital role in segregated schools prior to the 1954 landmark Supreme Court case "Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas." Despite their notable and historic presence in the field of public education, presently they are disproportionately underrepresented in the U.S. teacher workforce. Acknowledging…

Garry, Vanessa – American Educational History Journal, 2018
As the early twentieth century's restrictive social policies and poor economic conditions relegated African Americans in St. Louis, Mo. to high poverty neighborhoods, parents were forced to enroll their children in substandard segregated schools. Meanwhile the African American population increased in size from 108,765 (11.4 percent) in 1940 to…

Driver, Justin – Phi Delta Kappan, 2018
Although, at one time, many observers believed that the courts and the schools should have little to do with each other, Justin Driver argues that the public school has, in recent decades, served as the single most significant site of constitutional interpretation in the nation's history. He traces four reasons for this growing intersection…
