    Actually I think Homogeneous groups have been ruled to be illegal, because
    studies found that children of minority groups regularly were placed in the
    lower groups. Also the lower groups were often left behind, were as students
    with similar scores tended to improve when placed in heterogeneous groups.

    Subject: student groupings by class

    Hi everyone, our principal is thinking of changing our current practice
    of heterogeneous groupings of students to a homogeneous grouping. do
    any of you have experience with this?. Our school district currently
    has the 'academically challenged' students in homogeneous classes, but
    the rest are all heterogeneous.( All abilities in one class) We also
    practice inclusion and I'm not sure how this would fit into the picture
    yet. If you have any input, I would love to hear it. Also, if you know
    of any research on this subject, I'd appreciate that as well.
