This concluding chapter summarizes the book's findings and considers what the lack of true integration in American schools means for today's youth. Reflecting on the hardships created by classroom racial isolation, the chapter offers suggestions for ways that schools might address the most damaging aspects of racialized tracking and reduce, rather than reinforce, the conditions that encourage students' casting academic achievement as acting white. Lastly, it suggests new directions for future research on the topic of acting white and academic achievement. In addressing these core issues, the chapter looks at the relationship between race and achievement in American schools.

Keywords:   integration, acting white, racialized tracking, academic achievement, race, racial isolation, schools, youth
