Submitter: A coworker of mine found this one. What’s really weird is that the book was published in 1981. Wasn’t desegregation from much earlier?
Holly: To be fair, most of the libraries showing holdings in WorldCat are universities. This does have research value. It’s the few public libraries on the list that worry me. Hopefully they are in some sort of special collection, not just mixed in with the other 370’s.
It does seem like a fairly modern date for this topic, but actually modern education gurus like Jonathan Kozol are publishing currently about what they call “apartheid schools” in the U.S. The problem with this title is that it was published too late to be useful to the 1950’s and 1960’s civil rights movement and too old to be useful to the current educational advocacy movement. It was only useful to the 1980’s movement. I’d still weed it if it were in my public library, but it has a place in certain research libraries.
(My B.S. is in Education. I don’t get to “talk teacher” very often, so this topic excited me! Your comments are welcome!)
