The Negative Effects of a Neighborhood Institution
This chapter examines the factors that have triggered the black flight of pioneers by focusing on the role of schools in Parkmont's decline. It considers how pioneer parents, children, and teens cope with Lombard, the failing school in Parkmont. More specifically, it explores how parents' perceptions of Lombard influenced their decisions to move to the neighborhood and how their observations of the school continue to shape migration patterns. It shows that black pioneers blame school decline on a host of factors, including the inferior values and parenting of black second wavers. It also explains how the second wave children who largely attend Lombard fail to benefit from the presence of pioneer children in the classroom, because the latter are sent by their families to schools in other parts of the city due to the shortcomings in educational and behavioral control at Lombard.
