The Color of School Reform: Race, Politics, and the Challenge of Urban Education

This study traced the relationships among demographic change, political change, and education in: Atlanta, Georgia; Baltimore, Maryland; Detroit, Michigan; and the District of Columbia. Although each city is different and has experienced periods of enthusiasms for school reform, all four cities are dealing with objective indicators of educational failure, such as high dropout rates, poor performance on standardized tests, and employer dissatisfaction with graduates' basic skills.
