The Politics of De Facto Segregation. A Case Study.
Goldhammer, Keith; And Others
This document reports the findings of a project designed to identify and evaluate strategies employed by school administrators in dealing with conflicts arising from the diverse and opposing values held by different groups within a community. A city school district (identified as "Grandview"), which had been involved in a conflict situation caused by racial imbalance in its schools, was chosen as the site for this case study. Data were collected from newspaper accounts, personal interviews, questionnaires, and recorded documents in the files of the school district. The behaviors and interactions of the identifiable groups involved in the conflict are described within the framework of a chronology of events related to the conflict situation. This study offers a comprehensive reconstruction of the actions and events relevant to the resolution of a community conflict over racial imbalance in the schools. (Author/JH)
