A Study of the Changes in Numbers of Negro Teachers and Students in the Various Primary and Secondary School Systems of the State of Missouri.
Campbell, Rex R.; Mulvey, Susan A.
This report is concerned with racial segregation or integration of both teachers and students in the public schools of Missouri during the period 1954 to 1964. The information was collected by questionnaires, and the data analyzed by the University of Missouri researchers. In the beginning of the report, a brief introductory history of the black population is presented. The results of the study show that discrimination against black teachers is higher than against black students; also that between 1954 to 1964, there has been a decrease in the proportion of Missouri school systems hiring black teachers. This decrease in primarily rural areas suggests that as a result of school desegregation, black teachers' work opportunity has decreased. (Author/JW)
