Obama's Focus On Class Could Hurt Racial Deseg Efforts
From the Times (Delicate Obama Path on Class and Race Preferences):
"Some fear that Mr. Obama’s focus on the socioeconomic status of his daughters — as opposed to the diversity of experience and perspective they might bring to predominantly white campuses — may help conservatives in their battle to eliminate race from university admissions and government hiring."
Much the same could be said of Kahlenberg et al, who promote class-based deseg in the K12 system. But they're not as likely to be the next President. Here's another division within Democratic circles -- race vs. class-based deseg -- that Obama will have to deal with.
