Ryan JE. Five miles away, a world apart: One city, two schools, and the story of educational opportunity in modern America. Oxford ; New York: Oxford University Press; 2010.

"Weaving together court opinions, social science research, and compelling interviews with students, teachers, and principals, Ryan explains why all the major education reforms since the 1970s--including school finance litigation, school choice, and the No Child Left Behind Act--have failed to bridge the gap between urban and suburban schools and have unintentionally entrenched segregation by race and class."

Wolters R. Race and education, 1954-2007. Columbia, Mo.: University of Missouri Press; 2008.

"In this compelling study, a scholar who has long observed the traumas of school desegregation uncovers the changes and difficulties with which public education has dealt over the last fifty years -- and argues that some judicial decisions were ill-advised."
