Notes:

"Melissa F. Weiner argues that New York City schools did not serve as pathways to mobility for Jewish or African American students. Instead, at different points in the city's history, politicians and administrators erected for each group similar racial barriers to social advancement by marginalizing and denying resources that other students enjoyed."
