Interviews with Seven Black High School Students. Research and Development Memorandum No. 59.
Heath, Robert W.; Roy, Larnders
This document contains transcribed interviews with seven black high school students made in spring and summer 1969 as part of a larger study of an educational community organization program. They are presented here because it is felt the feelings and attitudes expressed are often overlooked as various groups of adults attempt to resolve issues of educational policy. The students are encouraged to discuss their feelings about the school they attend including such things as its problems and theirs, classes, teachers, student and teacher relations and attitudes, etc. The students attend three different schools which are close together: (1) one 90 percent black which has experienced recent educational disruptions resulting in the temporary closing of the school; (2) one 85 percent white which has been experiencing unresolved problems since its integration 3 years ago; and (3) one 90 percent white in which no major crisis situation developed as a result of accepting black transfer students. The students interviewed are a 16-year-old female sophomore, a 17-year-old female junior, two 15-year-old male sophomores, and three 17-year-old male juniors. (JS)
