Teaching Tolerance Magazine

Issue 31, Spring 2007


Central High School and the Little Rock Nine

Fifty years after the Little Rock Nine integrated Central High, Teaching Tolerance looks back and ponders the present, taking readers from Arkansas to the Supreme Court to answer this question: How does this historic moment inform the present and future of school integration and equitability?

The Spring 2007 issue also confronts the bias and harassment faced by gay and lesbian students and low-income students, as well as the challenges of striking a balance between promoting health and size acceptance.
