This chapter describes the research settings: eight multi-racial and –ethnic schools located in two U.S. and two South African cities. Half of these schools are mixed race and white-dominant; the half are mixed race (with one exception) and predominantly of color. All are considered relatively “good” schools in their local contexts. However, the educational experiences of the different social groups within vary—in some cases quite drastically. The chapter also provides details of the mixed research methods utilized, including surveys, ethnography and interviews.

Keywords:   multi-racial schools, mixed methods, ethnography, interviews, surveys
