Desegregation in schools – How can it be achieved? Desegregation in schools is becoming an important policy issue in the Netherlands. It is a problem that the United States has been grappling with for over 50 years. But how can it be achieved? There appear to be two options: the broad, horizontal community school and the quality?oriented and challenge-oriented magnet school. This paper draws a comparison between the two. Desegregatie in het onderwijs – Hoe krijgen we dat voor elkaar? Het tegengaan van etnische segregatie in het onderwijs krijgt in Nederland steeds meer aandacht. In de VS is dat al vijftig jaar het geval. De vraag is hoe desegregatie te organiseren. In dit artikel wordt een vergelijking gemaakt tussen de brede school en de magneetschool.
