ATTITUDES TOWARD DE FACTO SEGREGATION IN A NORTHERN CITY.
MARASCUILO, LEONARD A.
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED OF OPINIONS HELD BY ADULT CITIZENS OF BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, CONCERNING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SCHOOL INTEGRATION MADE BY A DE FACTO SEGREGATION STUDY COMMITTEE. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE ADMINISTERED TO A STRATIFIED-CLUSTER SAMPLE OF 936 ADULTS. THE RESULTS WERE PRESENTED IN TWO SECTIONS (1) DEMOGRAPHIC AND SOCIOECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SAMPLE POPULATION AND (2) ATTITUDES, AS REPORTED, OF THE RESPONDENTS TOWARD THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE IN THE STUDY REPORT. GENERAL CONCLUSIONS WERE THAT (1) SCHOOL BOUNDARY CHANGES TO ACHIEVE RACIAL BALANCE WERE ACCEPTABLE TO A MAJORITY OF ADULTS BUT WOULD MEET SIGNIFICANT OPPOSITION FROM SOME ESTABLISHED WHITE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY, (2) PROGRAMS FOR THE DISADVANTAGED WERE ACCEPTABLE AND GIVEN DEFINITE SUPPORT BY THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE, AND (3) REDUCTION OF ABILITY GROUPING (PLACEMENT OF CHILDREN IN CLASSES ACCORDING TO THEIR ACHIEVEMENT RATING) TO ACHIEVE RACIAL BALANCE IN THE CLASSROOM WAS NOT SUPPORTED.
