Desegregation in a Diverse and Competitive Environment: Admissions at Lowell High School

To comply with the district desegregation plan, the San Francisco Unified School District previously required higher scores for Chinese American applicants to its academic magnet high school than for more underrepresented groups. Examines the admissions debate, suggesting that exclusion of Asian and Latino concerns in district policymaking led to a lawsuit by several Chinese parents. Highlights school enrollment figures, discussing misconceptions about high-achieving African American and Latino students. (SM)
