|The practice of grouping school students by level of ability, known as tracking, has long been used in American public schools. In recent years, opponents of tracking have argued that below-average students are hindered by being grouped together, while average and above-average students are not substantially helped by the practice. The authors present research of their own that suggests that detracking would create winners AND losers, leaving policy makers with a difficult choice.|
