Ten Studies Pertaining to Residence, Mobility, and School Attendance Patterns of Discrete Black and Mexican American Populations in Tucson, Arizona, Between 1918 and 1976. Volume I.
Bockman, John F.
Volume I contains the substance of five studies originally filed with the United States District Court for the District of Arizona in the cases of "Fisher v. Lohr" and "Mendoza v. Tucson School District No. 1." Study I determines patterns of attendance at several elementary schools by non-Mexican American and Mexican American students residing in the same geographic area between 1920 and 1950. Results of data, which were re-analyzed following submittal in the Witness Statement, are incorporated in chart form and a new summary of findings. Study II shows that in the total context of residential patterns in the Holladay neighborhood, the Tucson Public Schools maintained a neutral and non-discriminatory role in setting the Holladay School boundaries from 1949 to 1974. Study III determines patterns of permanence or residence mobility (1949-1974) in the Holladay School neighborhood among Spanish-surnamed households. Study IV determines patterns of student attendance at Holladay School (1955-1967) as a means for judging whether a given student population was in any sense "contained" within the attendance boundaries. Results of Study V, originally filed as part of the Supplemental Witness Statement on October 26, 1976 and re-studied in light of Study I's findings, are incorporated in this publication. (NQA)
