Choices We Can’t Believe In: Race, Schooling, and the American Dream

Authors: Kirkland, David E.
Issue Date: 2019
Publisher: Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools
Series/Report no.: 49;1
Abstract: In this reprinting of his 2010 study on “the hidden of costs of school choice,” Dr. David E. Kirkland suggests that integration is a matter of conditions that give true choices. He contrasts integration to “false choice,” acts of desperation that toss fugitive bodies in transit to places where children find themselves unwanted. Kirkland suggests that integration is the expansion of freedom—both the freedom to move and the freedom to remain still. It is about conditions that bring people closer together as opposed to pushing them farther apart.
