Race, class, and education : the politics of second-generation discrimination by Kenneth J Meier( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how the use of academic grouping and tracking can limit the educational opportunities available to black students. Equal educational opportunities are examined for 174 U.S. school districts with at least 15,000 students and a 1 percent black enrollment. The focus is on political forces that affect education. The analysis indicates that patterns of racial difference in the sorting practices of schools form a consistent pattern of action that is termed second-generational educational discrimination. How these policies developed is reviewed. The following changes in public policy are needed to provide equal educational opportunities for black students: (1) abolishing at-large school districts to increase opportunity for minority representation; (2) increasing the number of black teachers; (3) making the Federal Office for Civil Rights an aggressive civil rights action agency; (4) empowering the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to release data on racial employment by school district; (5) reevaluating academic grouping; and (6) banning corporal punishment. Results of the analysis are presented in 44 tables and 4 figures. Appendix a, Statistical Analysis, contains an additional 14 tables. Appendix b lists the school districts included in the analysis. A 379-item bibliography is attached. (Sld)
Managing urban America : the politics and administration of America's cities by David R Morgan( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban managers continue to do what they have done for decades: manage conflict, adapt to shifting demographics, balance their own source funds with intergovernmental revenues, respond to federal and state mandates, negotiate with other localities in their same metropolitan area, and deliver goods and services. But managers today are confronted with new challenges in what has become 2fend for yourself3 federalism. City executives must do more with less while at the same time figure out ways to harness the power of new technologies and react to a globalized world and economy. It is no wonder then that even great managers can fail at urban administration. To succeed, they must understand the nature of community values, the pitfalls of bureaucratic inertia, and the craft of leadershipthat is, the politics of urban management. Morgan, England, and Pelissero offer a forward-looking account of this new urban management environment. In a comprehensive update, the authors have reorganized the books structure to better fit the challenges facing todays cities, and make even greater use of systems theory as an analytic framework. Featuring discussions of the New Public Management model, the impacts of globalization, changes in service delivery, urban planning, economic development, and program evaluation, they discuss key productivity enhancements that emphasize results and accountability. The authors then focus on the impact of citizen participation, e-government, the events of 9/11, and intergovernmental relations as examples of significant environmental factors that impinge on the management of modern cities. In addition, every case study in the book is brand new and many include information on 2Connecting to the Internet3 and 2Profiles of Urban Practitioners and Scholars. 3
The politics of second generation discrimination in American Indian education : incidence, explanation, and mitigating strategies by David E Wright( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even after a desegregation plan has been fully implemented, minority group children may continue to receive unequal treatment in school through the use of common educational practices such as ability grouping and disciplinary measures. These resegregative or "second generation discrimination" practices have an adverse effect on the life chances of minority students. Based on a model developed with African American and Hispanic students, the research outlined in this book examined second generation discrimination against American Indian students in 128 public school districts with at least 1,000 students and a 5 percent Indian enrollment. In addition, case studies were carried out in five districts in Oklahoma and Alabama. Major empirical findings were: (1) American Indians were significantly overrepresented in lower-level academic groupings (educable mentally retarded and learning disabilities classes), substantially underrepresented in gifted classes, and far more likely than Whites to be disciplined through school suspensions; (2) these indicators showed significant interrelationships; and (3) the presence of American Indian teachers was the most consistent and influential factor impeding second generation discrimination. Presence of American Indian teachers was related to presence of Indian administrators, which in turn was related to Indian representation on school boards. Case studies confirmed the importance of American Indian teachers and counselors and revealed the positive effects of cooperative learning strategies, community support, and federal Indian education programs. The book includes a list of the school districts studied, an extensive bibliography, an index, and 26 data tables and figures. (Sv)

Desegregating public schools : a handbook for local officials by David R Morgan( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook was prepared to provide guidance and suggestions primarily for school officials who are developing a plan for school desegregation or who are trying to revise an existing plan. Indications of what has and has not worked in other districts are based on experts' recommendations, on case studies from other communities, and on the findings of a research project that examined school desegregation in 52 American cities. Chapter one describes some publications that can serve as practical guides to school desegregation. Chapter two examines the historical and legal context of school desegregation by reviewing early court cases and deseqregation policy standards that emerged from them, changes that have taken place in schools over the years, and the issues of white flight and metropolitan plans in connection with desegregation. Chapter three deals with strategies and techniques, and reviews findings from experience and research of practices which yield the best results. Chapter four discusses issues and problems involved in busing. Chapter five considers the public leadership role in school desegregation. A concluding chapter summarizes the handbook. Appendices include some guiding principles for desegregation planners, a directory of desegregation assistance centers, and information on how to locate court decisions. (Author/MJL)
