The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Three Ethnic Specific Schools in the Twin Cities: Making Desegregation a Choice?

Cogan, John J., Antoinette Errante, and Kathryn Rentel.

By 1994, both Minneapolis and St. Paul had begun ethnic specific schools in an attempt to improve the performance of African American and American Indian children in school. A professor of education studied the evolution of the schools and their philosophy. Both parents and teachers were surveyed during the second year of their operation. It is too soon to evaluate success, but the issues the schools raised about the limitations of desegregation and about creating a multi-cultural society are among the most challenging facing American education today.
