Patterns of White Avoidance. Discussion Paper No. 500-78.
Wilson, Franklin D.
Using data from 63 public school districts serving central cities, this paper addresses the issue of whether whites' utilization of alternate forms of schooling is racially motivated. An effort is made to determine whether residence in census tract units of varying racial composition influences white out-migration and white utilization of nonpublic schools. Results show that residential populations living within individual school districts differ with respect to the extent of racial selection in residential relocation and nonpublic school utilization, according to region, percentage of black public school pupils, type of district, and implementation of school desegregation programs.
