The Case for School Integration.
Pettigrew, Thomas
Research shows that social class is a more important variable in determining educational achievement than race. Schools which provide a middle class milieu, therefore, will offer the best opportunities for achievement for Negro students. Consequently, the movement toward decentralization, which may effectively curtail integration, may further handicap Negroes by perpetuating social class segregation. The author feels strongly that integration must begin immediately and that dispersal plans must be started to break down the massive black ghettos in the cities. (NH)
