The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science
The State of Unequal Educational Opportunity: The Coleman Report Fifty Years Later



November 2017 | 97 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Released in 1966, the Coleman Report was a controversial study that assessed inequality in American
schools and its consequences for student achievement. The report triggered debate and significantly
influenced U.S. policy and educational research.

Fifty years later, this volume of The ANNALS explores some of the same issues that the Coleman Report
discussed, while also moving forward, looking beyond the issues that Coleman and his colleagues took
up. Articles examine families, schools, communities, immigration, and cross-national variation and how
they relate to education and educational achievement. Additionally, articles in this volume offer insights for
today’s researchers and policy-makers.
