A volume in Research on African American Education Series Editors: Carol Camp Yeakey, Washington University in St. Louis and Ronald D. Henderson, National Education Association The failure of American education to achieve racial diversity has resulted from the inability of educational researchers, policy makers, and judicial officials to disentangle the complex definitions that have emerged in a post-segregated society. Broken Cisterns provides snapshots of educational occurrences that have shaped current phenomena in schools and the larger society. Theoretical and empirical discussions related to segregation, desegregation, and integration provides a contextual framework for understanding their resulting effects. In response, the book examines the historic and community contexts of academic performance in both public and higher educational settings. The book also examines content aspects involving student achievement and the diverse elements that impact the strategies that should be used to enhance outcomes. Broken Cisterns examines the African American education experience post-Brown v. Board of Education, as well as the long-term effects that result from failure to achieve racial equity. The American education system demands new political and social agendas despite the seeming infinite cycle of persisting racial inequalities in educational settings. This book does just that.
