"Can we all get along?" : racial and ethnic minorities in American politics by Paula Denice McClain( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fourth edition, Paula McClain and Joseph Stewart combine traditional elements of political science analysis - history, Constitutional theory, institutions, political behavior, and policy actors - with a fully updated survey of the political status of four major groups: African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and American Indians. They show similarities and differences in these groups' political action and experience, and point the way toward coalition, competition, and consensus building in the face of ongoing conflict. Two dilemmas shape the book: How do we as a nation reconcile a commitment to equality with persistent inequality and discrimination? And, what can we do about it - from the perspective of ethnic and racial minorities as well as within the dominant culture? Thoroughly updated following the 2004 national elections and with complete 2000 Census data, this new edition provides a concise overview of minority politics in America."--Jacket
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 745 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)
