- Publisher's Summary
- This book examines the school choice process of Gentry Parents - -white, middle and upper-middle class, highly-educated parents living in gentrifying neighborhoods - - to determine how, through the compounding effect of their many individual choices, a segregated urban school in a gentrifying neighborhood is able to transform into an integrated school, a process the author calls 'tipping in.' This study uses data from 52 formal interviews of Gentry Parents in three different gentrifying/gentrified neighborhoods in New York City, and data from dozens of informal interviews and observations of Gentry Parents on playgrounds, school tours, and in pre-school cubby rooms.
