Notes:

"Clewell and Campbell have made a profoundly important and timely contribution with Good Schools in Poor Neighborhoods. Succinctly, they have elucidated the governing variables that attend exemplary student attainment‚ the students being poor and minority notwithstanding. Serving as a powerful model for critically needed future programming, this book counters the protection of 'privilege' conveyed by the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on student assignments to schools." -‚ÄîLuther S. Williams, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Tuskegee University
