Beyond Desegregation
The Politics of Quality in African American Schooling



March 1996 | 312 pages | Corwin
This book presents a discussion among scholars about the need for, implications of and critical issues involved in looking beyond school desegregation to focus on the quality of African American schooling.

The strategy of school desegregation is examined in the context of the power used by whites to control policy-making and implementation. The use of power by African Americans to resist schooling imposed by whites to maintain oppressive social relations is also discussed.
