Soc 427 8-29-16 Coleman Report (1966)  People see education as the “great equalizer” of society  Rather than comparing inequality in different schools, look at inequality in school vs. no school  10 years after school desegregation, there was still a large achievement gap between white and black students o People suspected this was due to school funding (teacher quality, textbook availability, etc.) o Coleman report said school was a small part of inequality  Inequality is mostly dependent on home life and peers  Critical literature of Coleman report o Tracking: sorting mechanisms that reinforce inequality (gifted, VoTech, AP classes)  White students are put on college prep track  Black students are put on VoTech track  Later research agrees with Coleman report o School has small influence on inequality  Do schools produce/reproduce or reduce inequality? Evidence for both sides: Schools (re)produce inequality Schools reduce inequality Geography of schools Resources targeted toward disadvantaged youth Quality of schools SES gap grows faster when school is out Busing disadvantaged youth to school Minimum teacher qualifications Gap in reading skills begins before school Kids gain BMI twice as fast when school is out  It is unclear if schools reproduce or buffer racial inequalities, but evidence leans toward saying they reproduce it  Refraction framework: what does school inequality look like compared to inequality in previous environment
