Problems and Perceptions in a Desegregated Urban High School: A Case Description and Its Implications.
Levine, Daniel U.; Mares, Kenneth R.
The purpose of this small study is to describe and consider the perceptions of various individuals and groups--particularly teachers and students involved in or familiar with the general situation at Southeast High School (a pseudonym) and the work of the Grievance Committee in particular. The study was conducted by interviewing several key staff members at the school, talking with and obtaining written accounts from observers who were in a position to know about developments there, and administering a short questionnaire to a limited number of students and teachers. Although it is considered that the mere act of forming the Grievance Committee possibly reduced tensions, there is little reason to believe that the Committee succeeded in helping bring about permanent changes or improvements.
