Penner (University of California, Irvine), authors of Schooled and Sorted: How Educational Categories Create Inequality. “As students move up in grades, a lot of times the tracking starts to take on a more concrete space in terms of students’ visible identities in schools … Somewhere around that 8th grade to 9th grade/10th grade transition, many of those tracking spaces end up determining the kind of courses students can or can’t take throughout their high school career and that also then sets the stage for their eligibility for higher ed opportunities in many cases,” says Emily Penner. “These kinds of categories also exist in higher education in really profound ways,” says Andrew Penner.
