The author starts by discussing several theories behind the belief that desegregation should or should not raise black achievement. He then reviews some of the major evidence on this relationship, both past and present. Finally, he brings these two topics together in order to discuss whether school desegregation will play a role in closing the achievement gap over the next 25 years.
