When courts lifted their school desegregation orders in the 1990s-declaring that black and white students were now "integrated" in America's public schools-it seemed that a window of opportunity would open for Latinos, Asians, and people of other races and ethnicities to influence school reform efforts. However, in most large cities the "multiethnic moment" passed, without leading to greater responsiveness to burgeoning new constituencies.Multiethnic Momentsexamines school systems in four major U.S. cities-Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco-to uncover the factors that worked for and against ethnically-representative school change. More than a case study, this book is a concentrated effort to come to grips with the multiethnic city as a distinctive setting. It utilizes the politics of education reform to provide theoretically-grounded, empirical scholarship about the broader contemporary politics of race and ethnicity-emphasizing the intersection of interests, ideas, and institutions with the differing political legacies of each of the cities under consideration.
