Integrating Schools in a Changing Society

The rapid growth of the Latino population in the United States brings particular urgency to the problem of increasing school segregation. An analysis of the hypersegregation of Hispanic students, and particularly Spanish-speaking English Language Learners (ELLs), suggests that little or no attention has been given to the consequences of linguistic isolation for these students. This chapter suggests how creating dual-language schools could provide enriching, equal-status integrated schooling experiences that would benefit students of all races especially the Latino students in many regions of the country.

Keywords:   school segregation, Latinos, Hispanic students, English Language Learners, ELLs, dual-language schools, Latino students
