Has Integration Made Raleigh’s Schools Great?

Nathan Glazer talks with Education Next about whether the policy of assigning students to schools to achieve socioeconomic diversity in Raleigh-Wake County has worked, as argued by Gerald Grant’s 2009 book, Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There are No Bad Schools in Raleigh.

For more of Glazer’s thoughts on Grant’s book, please see “Tale of Two Cities,” in the Spring 2010 issue of Education Next.
