The Struggle for Equality: School Integration Controversy in New York City.
Swanson, Bert E.
A study of the problems and decision making processes associated with the integration of New York City's public schools focuses on the reaction of the dominant white community to proposed integration policies. The research was funded by the U.S. Office of Education, Cooperative Research Program. The volume discusses the scope and method of this research, the integration controversy from 1954 to 1963, and the politics of education. The direct and indirect influences of the power struggle at the Board of Education and in the community are described. One chapter is devoted to white parent reactions to school pairing, and another is concerned with "subcommunity variables." (NH)
