Macias was able to do the same by encouraging Renita to remain in algebra rather than opt down to regular math. The experiences, efforts, and interactions of the people in this study show that the interactive and ongoing nature of tracking practices must make educators vigilant, but also bring hope. This hope lies in the realization that because tracking happens via the micro interactions of people within particular structural and cultural contexts, it may also be altered by attending to those very same interactions.
