Design for a National Longitudinal Study of School Desegregation: Executive Summary.
This is a final report to the United States Commission on Civil Rights, which requested The Rand Corporation to prepare a design for a research program on school desegregation. The report's audience is the group of policy-makers and research scientists who would be concerned with developing such a research program. This volume contains an overall summary of the proposed design. The body of the report is in two additional volumes; Volume 1 discusses the numerous theoretical and methodological issues involved in the deisgn and serves as a preamble to and rationale for Volume 2, which gives the detailed design. Rand has also prepared appendices containing a draft set of questionnaires and other research instruments. The research program is designed to accomplish two tasks: first to measure the effectiveness of different desegregation strategies in providing equality of educational experiences to black, Puerto Rican, Mexican-American, and Anglo students; second, to provide policy-makers with information about the problems that arise in school desegregation and with research results from which they can recommend national and local policies to help desegregation become more effective. From a research perspective it is efficient and practical to combine these two charges into a single research program. (Author/JM)
