Affective Climate and Integration: A Report Presented to ERIC Clearing House on the Disadvantaged.
Kraft, Richard J.
In order to test the hypothesis that integration of the public schools and individual classrooms has resulted in the development of positive attitudes between the races not only on the part of students but also for parents, teachers, principals, and the community at large, the author of this review of research focuses on studies on school integration completed from 1967 to 1969. Each study pertinent to the particular topic under consideration is reviewed individually, and at the conclusion of each section an assessment of the implications of the recent research on that particular topic is made. Topics dealt with include motivation, self concept, sense of control, anxiety, aspiration, behavior, social cognitions, and social attitudes. There is a brief review of previous research on each topic, and an overall concluding summary of the findings. In confirming the hypothesis the author used as major sources of information the facilities of Educational Resources Information Center system, Dissertation Abstracts, the returns on requests for current research which were sent to over 70 city school systems and universities involved in urban research, and current research reported in education periodicals.
