I think academics, simply b/c race and gender doesnt have a separation line of minority/majority. Just as many blacks and mexicans would be in the same advanced/slower class as whites or asians

Academics - race and gender should play no role in schools, after all the goal is education, not socialization. I do agree with the fact that ELL students do need their own classes, but to me that comes down to communication (or lack thereof) not race. I don't care what race you are, if you can't understand the teacher you aren't learning from that class. We have one elementary where the majority of ELL students are placed (and I think all of them this year) because that facility has the staff to work with those students. I have heard complaints that it is "racist" to place all of the ELL students in one school - I think just the opposite, it would be racist to not place them where they can learn to their fullest potential.
