This paper argues that self‐respect constitutes an important value, and further, an important basis for equality. It also argues that under conditions of inequality‐producing segregation, voluntary separation in schooling may be more likely to provide the resources necessary for self‐respect. A prima facie case of voluntary separation for stigmatized minorities when equality - as equal status and treatment - is not an option under either the terms of integration or involuntary segregation is defended.
