Reflections on School Integration approaches a contentious and topical issue with level-headed insight based on solid, rigorous research. Delegates at a colloquium to define a research agenda for the future, reviewed the latest international and local research and practice in the field of desegregation and integration of schools, took stock of the status quo in research and practice, and identified new directions research should be taking. This publication features the papers of a range of colloquium contributors. Both accessible and useful, it will be of value to those with an interest in contemporary education policy and developments.
