An Inquiry Into Integration of the Public Schools.
This paper is an inquiry into integration through a study of the literature. Criterion elements in the "American rationale" for integration are determined and an examination of whether integration has, can, or will satisfy the criterion elements is undertaken. The discussion centers about the concept of culture and the purpose of education--how beneficial or detrimental the integration movement can be. The inquiry focuses on northern urban America's difficulties, problems, and interests in segregation, desegregation, and integration. (Author)
