Description

The authors of this study maintain that programs that sort students into academic and vocational "streams" abuse working-class children, especially those from poor families.

These three experienced educators offer an Ontario-based case study of the results of streaming in classrooms on the children of working-class parents. Their conclusions -- backed by a detailed analysis of the impact of streaming -- suggest the need for change in order to ensure that quality education is available to all students.

Stacking the Deck explores the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that students are streamed, and suggests practical steps to make schools more democratic.

An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
