Follow Up Study of Student Attitude Toward School Reorganization of the Public Schools of a Northern City. Final Report.
Marascuilo, Leonard A.
In September 1964, students in the three junior high schools of the Berkeley, California community entered segregated eighth, ninth, and tenth grades. Near the end of the first year of the desegregation program, the principal investigator was asked by the School Board to make a survey of the students' attitudes toward the program. Following the second year of the program, the principal investigator was again asked to conduct a survey to determine what changes in attitude had occurred over the past school year. The investigation reported here is the third in this series of surveys, and is designed to measure the attitudes of graduating high school seniors to a school integration program that began when the students were enrolled in seventh grade classes in the community. By means of a mail survey conducted in the summer of 1970, students were asked questions concerning interracial friendships they made and developed during school, their experiences with interracial violence and aggression, their evaluation of the pursuit of education in an integrated school, their perception of social mixing on the part of other students, the quality of education they received in integrated classes, and their own experiences with interracial dating.
