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.
