Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (N = 1,922 high school graduates) examine the impact that academic tracking (ability grouping) has on the lives of school children. Results show that tracking interacts with the powerful social forces of race, gender, & socioeconomic status to limit the life chances of some children, especially those from racial minority groups. It is argued that tracking is a form of educational neglect that needs to come to the attention of school social workers, who need to be aware of any school practice that might restrict the potential for already at-risk children.
