TENHOUTEN, WARREN D.
THE SOCIALIZATION PROCESS OF NEGRO AND WHITE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WAS STUDIED. PRIMARY DATA WERE GATHERED FROM FIVE HIGH SCHOOLS LOCATED IN VARIOUS REGIONS OF THE UNITED STATES. THE SCHOOLS WERE SELECTED ACCORDING TO THEIR RACIAL COMPOSITION AND REGION, TWO IN THE SOUTH AND THREE IN THE NORTHEAST. SOUTHERN SCHOOLS HAD EXAMPLES OF ALL NEGRO AND ALL WHITE. NORTHERN SCHOOLS HAD EXAMPLES OF ALL NEGRO, RACIALLY MIXED, AND PREDOMINATELY WHITE. THE SUBJECTS (7,949) WERE ADMINISTERED A PAPER AND PENCIL QUESTIONNAIRE ON ASPECTS OF SOCIOLOGICAL INFORMATION. SECONDARY DATA CONSISTED OF THEORETICAL AND EMPIRICAL STUDIES. THESE DATA WERE DEVELOPED INTO AN INTEGRATED THEORY OF SOCIALIZATION, RACE, AND THE AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL. DISCUSSION INCLUDED TOPICS ON (1) ROLE SOCIALIZATION, (2) THE FAMILY, (3) PEERS, (4) SOCIALIZATION IN THE HIGH SCHOOL, (5) RACIAL SOCIAL SYSTEMS, (6) TEACHERS, (7) YOUTH ASPIRATIONS, AND (8) REFERENCE GROUP INTERACTION.
