Equality of educational opportunity by James S Coleman( Book )

The product of an extensive survey requested by the civil rights act of 1964, this report documents the availability of equal educational opportunities in the public schools for minority group negroes, puerto ricans, mexican-americans, oriental-americans, and american indians, as compared with opportunities for majority group whites. Comparative estimates are made on a regional as well as on a national basis. Specifically, the report details the degree of segregation of minority group pupils and teachers in the schools and the relationship between students' achievement, as measured by achievement tests, and the kinds of schools they attend. Educational quality is assessed in terms of curriculums offered, school facilities such as textbooks, laboratories, and libraries, such academic practices as testing for aptitude and achievement, and the personal, social, and academic characteristics of the teachers and the student bodies in the schools. Also in the report is a discussion of future teachers of minority group children, case studies of school integration, and sections on higher education of minorities and school nonenrollment rates. Information relevant to the survey's research procedures is appended. Notable among the findings on the survey are that negro students and teachers are largely and unequally segregated from their white counterparts, and that the average minority pupil achieves less and is more affected by the quality of his school than the average white pupil. This document is also available from the superintendent of documents, U.S. government printing office, washington, D.C. 20402, for $4.25. (ah)

Sixteen authors, from many different backgrounds, offer their observations about American education and about American society in general. The articles focus on educational alternatives in the past and present systems of American education. Subjects covered include: historical perspectives on American education, teacher attitudes toward public education, parent and community views on education, cultural pluralism and education, the funding of public education, voucher systems, parochial education, and other opportunities for educational choice. Two appendices include a model statute designed to further integration and a friend-of-the-court brief filed in the Crawford V. Los Angeles Unified School District desegregation case of 1977.

Parents, their children, and schools( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parental involvement with children at home, in school, and in the community is one of the most important factors in educational success. Yet we know very little about the most effective approaches to parental intervention. Moreover, not all parents have the same resources or opportunities to act on the educational expectations they have for their children. This book examines the resources available to parents and the actions parents can take to further their children's education. It is the first study of the subject based on major survey data, drawing from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 - a national survey of 26,000 eighth graders, their parents, teachers, and school administrators. The authors explore several important debates, including the extent to which parental involvement can mitigate the constraints of poverty for minorities and disadvantaged students, school choice and equality of educational opportunity, and the effects that school-sponsored activities involving parents have on educational performance. Certain to change the thinking of educators and policymakers, this book is essential reading for scholars and parents as well

Redesigning American education by James S Coleman( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on several principles of sociological theory, James S. Coleman and his colleagues construct a new design for American schooling. The authors present compelling evidence on the deficits of our educational system compared to other countries, arguing that the problems are the result of inappropriate incentives for teachers, students, and parents. Asserting that most American school systems are driven by administrative needs, the authors propose school designs that would shift the focus to student achievement output as the driving force behind public education
