Public School Segregation and Related Population Characteristics of Stamford, Connecticut.
Rosenthal, Harvey M.
This compilation of selected social, demographic and economic characteristics of the Stamford population as these pertain to the current racial composition of the city's public schools, was part of a larger study of quality desegregated education conducted in the Stamford public schools. The data were derived from a number of sources, primarily the 1960 United States Census reports. The major findings show the Negro and white populations of Stamford to be estimated as 10.0 percent and 90.0 percent respectively in 1966. Any school having more than double, or less than half the percentage of the representation of Negroes in the city population, was classified as racially segregated. By this definition and on the basis of the 1966 student census conducted by the superintendent of the Stamford public schools, 12 of the 17 public elementary schools were classified as either Negro or white segregated. The major determinant of public school segregation is the city's extreme pattern of residential segregation. (JM)
