Abstract

Racial redress in education cannot be considered outside the historically unequal relationships between black and white, rural and urban, rich and poor. Here, the big picture from research on racial redress in education is consistent. Redress in the form of a major turnaround of inequalities has not been achieved, writes Linda Chisholm.
