Introduction to the Issue on Segregation, Desegregation, and Integration: From History, to Policy, to Practice

by Sarah Diem & Jeffrey Brooks - 2013

The articles in this special issue examine the increasingly complex relationship between segregation, desegregation, and integration in a sociopolitical environment vastly different from that of the initial days of desegregation. These issues are examined from historical and political perspectives, contextualizing the complexities of segregation, desegregation, and integration in the twenty-first century. The articles challenge school leaders to critically engage in pioneering processes within their communities that work to create, maintain, and sustain diverse schooling environments.

Dr. Diem is currently involved in a study with Erica Frankenberg that examines the impact of suburbanization on countywide districts’ diversity policies.
