Paradoxes of desegregation : African American struggles for educational equity in Charleston, South Carolina, 1926-1972

"Paradoxes of Desegregation brings much needed historical perspective to contemporary debates about the landmark federal education law, No Child Left Behind. Baker analyzes decades of historical evidence related to high-stakes testing and concludes that desegregation, while a triumph for advantaged blacks, has paradoxically been a tragedy for most African Americans."--Jacket
