THE QUEST FOR RACIAL EQUALITY: A PUBLIC POLICY FRAMEWORK
Author: RONALD SCHMIDT, SR.
Published in IJED, Vol. 10 No. 1
This essay asserts there are three central questions that must be addressed in developing public policies aimed at reducing racial inequality in American society. After articulating these central questions, the essay elaborates the most prominent rationales provided by proponents of each side of the central questions, and illustrates the rationales with examples of policies adopted and/or proposed by proponents of each side. The essay concludes with the suggestion that the positions taken in response to the three central questions are directly tied to underlying assumptions and/or arguments about the most important causes of continuing racial inequality in American society.
