Diamond’s new book examines, ‘How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools’

In an effort to bring in-depth research, new data and some much-needed clarity to the topic that's commonly referred to as the racial achievement gap, UW-Madison's John Diamond co-authored a book with Amanda Lewis that’s titled, “Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools." What makes this publication unique is how Diamond and Lewis closely look within the school for information and evidence about what’s “racial” about the racial achievement gap.
