Exploring the Difference in Diverse Schools' Destinies: A Research Note


by Erica Frankenberg - March 04, 2010

Many schools are diverse, but it is unclear whether they will remain so or are in the process of racial transition and appear diverse for a short period of time. This research note examines the stability (or instability) of racially diverse schools over the period of a decade. In particular, it studies the characteristics of schools and districts that may relate to whether schools remain stably diverse or whether they are susceptible to rapid racial change. Using federal education data, this analysis finds that school and district characteristics such as size and racial composition provide different contexts which may differentially affect the stability of diverse schools. These patterns have important implications for schools, teachers, and the communities in which they are located.
