Facing the consequences : an examination of racial discrimination in U.S. public schools by Rebecca Gordon( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1999, community organizations in several U.S. cities studied their local school districts to determine how they measured up in terms of racial justice. Using the computerized Racial Justice Report Card, they gathered data from 12 school districts. Only one district (Boston, Massachusetts) received a passing grade, and it was only a D. Results found glaring inequalities and discrimination in the public schools. African American students especially, along with Latino and Native American students, were suspended or expelled in disproportionate numbers. Students of color were more likely to drop out or be pushed out of school and less likely to graduate than were white students. They also had less access to advanced classes or programs for gifted students. The racial makeup of the teaching corps rarely matched that of the student body. This report recommends that all school districts be required to keep and publish annual key statistics on racial equity; schools must act immediately to correct uneven application of the most severe disciplinary actions; and schools must end academic tracking and open the way for all students to participate in a challenging curriculum. Appendixes contain results of the racial justice report cards for individual school districts and the text of California Senate Bill 81, which mandates collection and publication of key data for the state's public schools.

Creating crisis : how California's teaching policies aggravate racial inequalities in public schools by Terry Keleher( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines problems in California's public school teaching force, from training to recruitment to retention. It describes who currently teaches, notes the lack of minority teachers in an increasingly diverse student population, and examines pathways to teaching and barriers to certification. It details the teaching crisis in the state's seven largest districts, and it adds extended accounts from a teacher recruiter, a teacher candidate taking the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST), and an experienced teacher of color watching newcomers being disempowered and unsupported by the system. Finally, the report makes recommendations about how to correct some of the problems that it describes, including: fully invest in the development of teaching talent and resources at high-need schools by creating local education action projects; develop a fully prepared, highly skilled teaching force better suited to California's changing demographics; eliminate barriers that prevent qualified people from becoming teachers, including the CBEST; significantly increase teacher compensation across the state and provide incentives for teaching in high-need schools; and aggressively institute programs to attract more teachers of color.
