Reardon, Sean F. – Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis, 2015
Although it is clear that racial segregation is linked to academic achievement gaps, the mechanisms underlying this link have been debated since Coleman published his eponymous 1966 report.

Berry, Robert Q., III – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
An examination of past research, policies, and reforms in mathematics education suggests that there have always been, and remain, tensions in conceptualizing the aims and goals of mathematics teaching and learning.

Nix-Hodes, Patricia; Heybach, Laurene M. – Critical Questions in Education, 2014
While the intent of the federal and state homeless education laws is clear, securing the educational rights of students without housing has been a long legal and political struggle in Chicago and Illinois.

Grant, Marquis C. – Online Submission, 2014
The decision handed down by the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education was not only a legal victory for African Americans in the United States, but all groups who were forced into exclusionary environments.

García, Emma; Weiss, Elaine – Economic Policy Institute, 2014
Closing achievement gaps--disparities in academic achievement between minority and white students, and between low-income and higher-income students--has long been an unrealized goal of U.S. education policy. It has now been 60 years since the Supreme Court declared "separate but equal" schools unconstitutional in "Brown v. Board of…

May 17 is the 60th anniversary of "Brown v. Board of Education," the U.S. Supreme Court's 1954 decision that prohibited Southern states from segregating schools by race. The "Brown" decision annihilated the "separate but equal" rule, previously sanctioned by the Supreme Court in 1896, that permitted states and school…

Kucsera, John – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2014
The fight for equal educational opportunity in New York has followed a pattern similar to other diverse or racially transforming states. From the 1950s to 1980s, the issue of school desegregation was an important issue. Local civil rights pressure, the courts, and legislation attempted to desegregate large urban school systems through both…

Ayscue, Jennifer B.; Woodward, Brian – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2014
North Carolina has a storied history of school integration efforts spanning several decades. In response to the "Brown" decision, North Carolina's strategy of delayed integration was more subtle than the overt defiance of other Southern states. Numerous North Carolina school districts were early leaders in employing strategies to…

Niemeyer, Arielle – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2014
Delaware's history with school desegregation is complicated and contradictory. The state both advanced and impeded the goals of "Brown v. Board of Education." After implementing desegregation plans that were ineffective by design, Delaware was ultimately placed under the first metropolitan, multi-district desegregation court order in the…

Ford, Donna Y.; King, Robert A., Jr. – Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, 2014
This article examines the under-representation of African American students in gifted education, with attention to how representation differs for Black males and females. We contend that social injustices (e.g., prejudice and discrimination) contribute to racially segregated gifted education classes (Ford, 2013b). For support, gifted…

Graff, Cristina Santamaria; Kozleski, Elizabeth – Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, 2014
The 2007 "Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1". Supreme Court 5:4 decision suggests that the Court is divided in its interpretation of "Brown" and its intent in addressing racial segregation.
