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…

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. In a more difficult political and legal environment, it has fallen on school districts to develop and implement voluntary integration plans through diversity-minded student assignment…

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.

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…

Mead, Julie F.; Eckes, Suzanne E. – National Education Policy Center, 2018
Recent reports on discrimination in private schools have led some observers to decry the fact that private and charter schools receiving public tax dollars selectively exclude some populations from both employment and enrollment; others, however, note that in these and similar instances the schools have broken no laws. Both may be right. How can…

Acosta, Melanie M.; Foster, Michele; Houchen, Diedre F. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2018
Although teacher diversity, teacher preparation, and student achievement are contemporary and overlapping issues, they have suffered from the absence of African American educational principles and traditions.

The landmark ruling held that laws mandating segregation in the school systems of the eleven states of the Old Confederacy, along with D.C. and six other states, violated the U.S. Constitution.
