A Report on the Achievement of Elementary Pupils in Integrated Schools. McAteer Project M9-14.
Purl, Mabel C.; Dawson, Judith
Four years after the inception of a school desegregation busing program, the average reading achievement test scores of the bused pupils showed the same trends as those among the receiving pupils and pupils at unaffected schools. Tests scores among all kindergarten pupils showed an upward trend, as well as scores in the first, second, and third grades. The changes which have occurred are held to be probably due more to other factors than to desegregation. Desegregation is considered to be more beneficial for the higher achieving minority pupils than for the lower achiever. There is also said to be a significant correlation between the average achievement of bused and receiving pupils. (Author/DM)
