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