Promoting Student Integration in City High Schools: A Research Study and Improvement Guide for Practitioners. Executive Summary.
Genova, William J.; Walberg, Herbert J.
This summary report of a study of school integration (defined here as the extent to which students of different racial and ethnic backgrounds know and get along with each other) indicates that school integration is advanced by the following practices: social mixing, racial fairness, staff support for integration, security, staff modeling, and multicultural exposure. A high correlation is also reported between school integration and educational climate (student involvement in school activities, equal treatment, academic environment, and so on). Since these factors are all within the control of the school, it is urged that school personnel take those steps indicated for positive student relationships. (WP)
