REPORT OF SPECIAL STUDY OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS.
JOHNSON, THERON A.
TO IDENTIFY THE ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN NEW YORK STATE, THE DIVISION OF INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS MAILED QUESTIONNAIRES TO 882 SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH AT LEAST ONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BUILDING. FOR THE QUESTIONNAIRE ETHNIC GROUPS WERE DESIGNATED AS "NEGRO,""WHITE,""PUERTO RICAN," AND "OTHER." AS OF THE PRINTING OF THIS REPORT, 95 PERCENT OF THEM HAD BEEN RETURNED. IT WAS FOUND THAT WHILE ONLY 33 PERCENT OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS ENROLLED ONLY WHITE PUPILS, 41 PERCENT OF SCHOOL BUILDINGS WERE ALL WHITE. THE FINDINGS OF THE SURVEY ARE SUMMARIZED IN DISTRIBUTION TABLES. THESE FINDINGS DO NOT REPORT THE ETHNIC DISTRIBUTION IN THE NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS, WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED SEPARATELY. (NH)
