Hello! I am one semester away from completing my teaching credential in California. One of the requirements for a CA Credential is taking a Multicultural Foundations course. Last night in class a heated debate was sparked about segregation in schools. There is a consensus that racial segregation has evolved into a form of class segregation. I feel this can happen in one of a few ways :: As the average socio-economic class of the community rises, students develop different interests (either academically or socially) so instead of separating themselves into black-white-asian-latino, the split is between rich and not-so-rich. Another reason might be that as 'minority groups' are actually the minority (take some Bay Area schools in California for example - San Jose is predominantly Latino whereas a school in Palo Alto might be predominantly white), the commonalities shift from skin color to something else. In this case, similar interests and social class. I am interested in feedback, either from students or parents of students who have witnessed anything like this in schools. I am interested in where else this is happening and possible causes for this shift in segregation. Thanks!
