Racial Interaction in an Urban, Secondary School.
Cusick, Philip A.; Ayling, Richard J.
The purpose of this project was to determine where, to what extent, and what was the nature of black and white student interaction in the school, and how these interactions affected other facets of the school's organization. Through a six-month participant observation, the authors found that interracial interaction occurred only in the classrooms where students were academically motivated and the teacher was highly structured. Blacks and whites avoided each other outside the classroom to avoid racial violence. (DM)
