"In their penetrating excavation of racial inequality in schools, Diamond and Lewis complicate scholarly debates, challenge facile rhetoric, expose the historical narratives that shape contemporary educational discourses, and illuminate a way forward. Powerful, probing and path breaking, Despite the Best Intentions is a timely and important book." -Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Emily Hargroves Fisher Professor of Education, Harvard University and author of The Good High School, I've Known Rivers, and The Essential Conversation"This work goes right to the heart of America's chief educational challenge: how our ordinary, well-intended day-in and day-out school practices can create dramatically different school experiences for students from different identity groups. Read this work and learn what can be done about it." -Claude Steele, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, University of California, Berkeley and author of Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do"In Despite the Best Intentions, based on five years of research in an affluent and diverse school district, Lewis and Diamond painstakingly show how white parents hoard resources and teachers almost literally police children of color. This book ought to shake up the way we debate school outcomes as it forces us to appreciate that the 'normal, ' seemingly color-blind operation of schools is the problem. Bravo to Lewis and Diamond for a job well done!"-Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Chair and Professor of the Duke Sociology Department"A readable and important addition to the literature on schooling and inequity. Highly recommended. All readers." -CHOICE"Lewis and Diamond have performed a valuable service in revealing essential dynamics of white advantage or privilege in a well-regarded school. Additional case studies of other institutions can build upon their insights. This book should also be widely read by educators, especially those confronted with the seeming paradox of racially dual schools within the same institution." --John L. Rury, University of Kansas, lWomen, Gender, and Families of Color"Lewis and Diamond frame the issue of racial achievement gaps in a particularly compelling way. Lewis and Diamond's analysis of discipline disparities and racialized tracking systems is fine-grained and theoretically grounded, as is their analysis of opportunity hoarding among white parents." --Social Service Review
