This book recounts the last forty years of Charlottes desegregation and resegregation, putting education reform in political and economic context. Within a decade of theSwanncase, the district had developed one of the nations most successful desegregation plans, measured by racial balance and improved academic outcomes for both black and white students. However, beginning in the 1990s, this plan was gradually dismantled. Today, the level of resegregation in Charlotte has almost returned to what it was prior to 1971. At the core of Charlottes story is the relationship between social structure and human agency, with an emphasis on how yesterdays decisions and actions define todays choices.
