School Choice and Ethnic Segregation

Educational Decision-making among Black and Minority Ethnic Parents.
Cover image

This report explores the nature of choice as exercised by BME families, examining the question as to whether current educational reform in this area adequately promotes race equality. Given that schools are ideal sites for the promotion of community cohesion as well as the provision of good educational standards, the report also explores the wider impact of increasing parental choice in education. If parents are encouraged to exercise more choice towards good schools and away from failing ones, will this cretate increasingly segregated schools? And what might be the impact of such segregation on the educational achievements of BME pupils?
