How Pontiac Teachers View Their Schools.
Pavlish, Alfred; Kazen, David
The purpose of this study was to examine the attitudes and opinions of certified school personnel in Pontiac, Michigan after the school district of that city had undergone approximately 9 months of court ordered desegregation. The survey instrument, a mail opinionnaire, used in this study was designed to gather attitude data concerning the following: (a) the desegregation plan and its effects, (b) student interracial and interpersonal relationships, (c) relationships between administrative and instructional staff, and (d) the adequacy of the present school curricula. Results of the study indicate that a difference of opinions, perceptions, and attitudes exists between black and white professionals in the Pontiac schools.
