Brown, Kathleen Sullivan; Mullin, Christopher M.; White, Bradford R. (2009). The Illinois Class of 2002 and Race/Ethnicity: A Descriptive Summary Four Years after High School. Policy Research: IERC 2009-5, Illinois Education Research Council. The Illinois High School Class of 2002 is part of the third generational wave of American students following the landmark Supreme Court decision in "Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka," which outlawed segregation in public education. This longitudinal study allows the authors to examine the long-term impacts of this monumental education and legal policy in the state of Illinois. An examination of data on how students of various races and ethnicities participate in public and private postsecondary education can provide insights into their subsequent success and challenges in pursuing the American Dream through educational advancement. Presented are results for the cohort as a whole. The authors display data by fall, spring, and summer semesters to capture the annual rhythms of educational participation.   [More]  Descriptors: Court Litigation, Educational Policy, Racial Differences, Postsecondary Education

Baugh, John (2006). Linguistic Considerations Pertaining to "Brown v. Board": Exposing Racial Fallacies in the New Millennium, Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education. "Brown v. Board of Education" reminds this author, a linguist, of the linguistic diversity among black Americans, be they descendants of enslaved Africans–as he is proud to be–or Africans who escaped slavery. There is as much linguistic diversity among their race as among any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. When the Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision, "Brown" was hailed as the case that would lead to educational equality for all African Americans. That vision, however, has yet to be realized. In part, that is because, since "Brown," they have come to understand that racial segregation was only one obstacle standing in their way. This paper seeks to introduce some neglected linguistic dimensions into this realm, with particular attention to the "Brown" ruling and the growing linguistic diversity of black America.   [More]  Descriptors: African Americans, Equal Education, Racial Segregation, Linguistics

Flanagan, Connie; Gallay, Leslie (2008). Adolescent Development of Trust. CIRCLE Working Paper 61, Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE). The purpose of this project was to gain a better understanding of dimensions of trust and inter-relationships between those dimensions during the adolescent years. Drawing from survey data collected at the beginning and end of a semester in eighty middle- and high-school social studies classes, relationships were assessed between: social trust, trust in elected officials, trust in the responsiveness of government to ordinary people, trust in the American promise, and trustworthiness of the media. The study was designed as a randomized evaluation of a civics curriculum called Student Voices in the Campaign, with data gathered from two waves of surveys with 1,670 students ages 12-19 during the fall of 2004. Students from ethnic minority backgrounds were less likely than their ethnic majority peers to trust elected officials or people in general or to believe that the government was interested in ordinary people. However, ethnic minority students were not less likely to believe in the general tenets of that all people, regardless of background, had an equal opportunity to succeed in America. Controlling for social class, age, and ethnicity, adolescents' trust in the American promise and their civic commitments were found to be significantly predicted by the youths' proximate experiences of social inclusion in their communities and, particularly for ethnic minority students) by their reports that teachers practiced a democratic ethos at school.   [More]  Descriptors: Adolescent Development, Social Class, Trust (Psychology), Minority Groups
