Negro and White Youth: A Psychological Study in a Border-State Community.
Lott, Albert J.; Lott, Bernice E.
This study explored the educational and vocational choices and goals of Negro and white youth in Lexington, Kentucky. Data were gathered by standardized instruments administered to the senior classes of four high schools and through interviews of a group of school leaders judged to have potential as behavior models and community leaders. The book discusses the research methodology, the nature of the sample, and the selection and characteristics of the leaders. A final chapter presents the interpretations and conclusions. The major finding was that leaders of both races viewed the importance of a high school education in similar terms--as a path to economic advancement, improvement of social-interpersonal skills, and as a source of information.
