Attitudes Toward School Desegregation in Riverside and Redlands. School Desegregation, Bulletin Series, No. 1.
Roessler, Richard, Ed.
This bulletin gives some of the results of an attitude survey on school desegregation in Riverside and Redlands, California. Children and parents were questioned. The results indicate that parents and students in Riverside reacted very positively to three years of integrated education. Anglo parents felt that their children were not having more difficulty in learning. Parents of all three groups (Negro, Mexican-American, and Anglo) reported favorable perceptions of busing, the quality of education, social acceptance, and home-school relationships. In the Redlands, the Negro and Mexican-American parents believed that integrated education represents a better education; they also felt welcome in the schools. The parents have rated the quality of desegregated education as high, although some parents do believe that there are more discipline problems. According to the parents, the children reacted positively to their school experiences, and teachers were quite friendly and helpful to the students. (Editor/JW)
