Desegregation Research: An Appraisal. Second Edition.
This publication reviews research related to the effects of school desegregation on the academic achievement and self-concept of white students, and non-Negro minorities, and on race relations within the community. Separate chapters are devoted to the Riverside School Study, a 5-year school desegregation program with extensive evaluation and research components which is scheduled to be completed in 1972, and to two federal reports--the Equal Educational Opportunity Survey by the U. S. Office of Education, and Racial Isolation in the Public Schools by the United States Commission on Civil Rights. Conclusions drawn from the research studies reviewed are that desegregation improves the academic achievement and self-concept of Negro students, while not impairing those of white students, and also improves race relations within the community. The publication contains an author index, a geographical area index to the research studies reviewed, and a 55-page bibliography. (RT)
