Life in cities—i.e., in organized human settlements, which are
mostly referred to as communities in this book—is possible only if
people have mobility1 on a daily basis—the ability to move around
so that they can do what they have to do or like to do. One char-
acterization of a city is that it consists of specialized, frequently
clustered, activities that perform discrete functions. Residences
are separate from workplaces, major shopping is concentrated in
identifiable centers, and larger entertainment and relaxation facil-
ities are found at specific locations.

Elusive Equity documents South Africa’s efforts to create a racially equitable state education system from the ashes of apartheid education. Edward Fiske and Helen Ladd describe and evaluate the strategies that South African policy makers have pursued in their quest for equity. They draw on previously unpublished data, interviews with key officials, and visits to dozens of schools to describe the changes made to school financing, teacher allocation, governance, curriculum, and other areas.
