Kate’s Korner:  SPC 313- school experiments with segregation 1-31-11

I can see where there would be cries of racism with this study, but if the students and parents aren’t the ones who have issues with the situation, then I don’t see it as a problem. However, I do agree that the school needs to ‘tread lightly’ as was mentioned in your post. Using this study as a tool to gauge who (individuals, not necessarily race) needs help in school is a great starting point to increasing test scores and as long as it is handled in a professional manner and all students are treated with respect, regardless of race, I could see this becoming a very helpful tool for the school.
