Social Acceptability of Retarded Children in Nongraded Schools Differing in Architecture. Volume 2, Number 28.
Gottlieb, Jay; Budoff, Milton
The social position of integrated and segregated educable mentally handicapped (EMR) children in a traditional school building was compared to that of EMR children in a no-interior wall school. The results indicated that while EMR children in the unwalled school were known more often by their nonEMR peers, they were not chosen as friends more often. Retarded children in the unwalled school were rejected more often than retarded children in the walled school. Also, integrated EMR children were rejected more than segregated EMR children.
