The Black High School and Its Community. A Final Report.
Rogers, Frederick A.
This study focuses on a formerly all-black high school, which formed one-half of the dual school system in North Carolina, in order to assess both the direct and indirect functions that the school may have performed in developing leadership skills, apprenticeship opportunities, and the total development of the black community. Seven reasons indicating the importance of the study are given, including the use of official data to document the formal structure of the school, the increase in awareness of the influence of leadership and membership on students and on school as a socializing agent, and the validity of the methodology used to test qualitative aspects of the high school. The study is presented in seven parts which deal with methodological perspective for for understanding the high school in North Carolina in relation with community development, data description for 1963-64 school year, the black high school, the black high school principal, the black high school ten years later--1973, and inferences and propositions that are seen to warrant further consideration.
