Student Mobility in Selected Minneapolis Public Schools. Report No. Three: Patterns of Student Mobility.
Murton, Bonnie J.; Faunce, R. W.
One of three studies of student mobility in selected Minneapolis Public Schools, this study focuses on the patterns of movement within Target (high deliquency) Areas. All children completing 6th grade in June 1962 in six Target elementary schools and all children completing 6th grade in five comparison schools comprise the sample for which numbers and locations of school registrations were calculated. Students in Target Areas tended to move within Target Areas, and nearly nine of every 10 school registrations by Target children were made within the Poverty Area of the city, while 95% of registrations by wealthier comparison children were outside the Poverty Area. Economic segregation appeared stronger than racial segregation since 75% of the "poor" sample was white. Movement by poor children showed no evidence of upward economic mobility, while movement by above average income children showed substantial economic improvement. (BP)
