Relationships between School Desegregation and Government Housing Programs: A Milwaukee Case Study.
Quinn, Lois M.; And Others
This pilot study examined the interrelationships between school desegregation programs and housing patterns in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. First, a field study explored the attitudes of minority families participating in the city-suburban school desegregation program which involved city-suburban pupil transfers. Secondly, the pupil movement under the city and metropolitan desegregation plans was assessed for its impact on segregated residential housing patterns in the community. The third aspect of the study analyzed the two largest Federal rental housing programs operating in the county for their impact on racial integration of schools and housing. The study indicates a need for more coordinated efforts by school and housing officials if successful, long-range integration is to occur. (Author/ML)
