Abstract

Death of a Suburban Dream explores the history of Compton from its founding in the late nineteenth century to the present, taking on three critical issues which have shaped the Los Angeles suburb: the history of race and educational equity, the relationship between schools and place, and the complicated intersection of schooling and municipal economies. An interesting historical portrait, finds Kerwin Datu.
