THE SCHOLASTIC PERFORMANCES OF NEGRO AND WHITE PUPILS IN THE INTEGRATED PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
HANSEN, CARL F.
THREE HYPOTHESES WHICH DOCUMENT THE EDUCATIONAL VALUE OF SCHOOL INTEGRATION ARE INVESTIGATED IN THIS ARTICLE. THE FIRST HYPOTHESIS IS THAT BOTH WHITE AND NEGRO PUPILS NOW ENJOY EDUCATIONAL CONDITIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES SUPERIOR TO THOSE PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE UNDER A POLICY OF SEGREGATION. SECONDLY, ON OBJECTIVELY MEASURED SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT TESTS NEGRO PUPILS PERFORM BETTER NOW THAN THEY DID WHEN ATTENDING SEGREGATED SCHOOLS. FINALLY, WHITE PUPILS DURING THE FIVE YEARS PRIOR TO 1963 HAVE MAINTAINED A LEVEL OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT CONSISTENT WITH THEIR PERFORMANCE PRIOR TO DESEGREGATION. STATISTICAL DATA ARE PRESENTED IN SUPPORT OF THESE HYPOTHESES. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL SOCIOLOGY," VOLUME 36, NUMBER 6, FEBRUARY 1963, P. 287-290. (DK)
