Evaluation in Mandated Integration: Decision Making and Program Planning.
Eash, Maurice J.; Rasher, Sue Pinzur
This study reports the evaluation of the effects of a mandated busing program which integrated the student body in a K-8 suburban school district. A two phase, three year study gathered evaluation data on achievement, classroom instruction, student and staff attitudes, perceived classroom environments, and student behavior incidents. Evaluation data were gathered on 2,500 students in the first two years and 300 fourth grade students in the third year. The data were analyzed using the variables of race, sex, grade, school, achievement, and classroom environment. The evaluation results, their use and implication for decision making and program planning are discussed. On the whole, the effects of mandated busing and integration on the Forrestville School system were contrary to much of the national picture. All children appeared to benefit both academically and socially from integration. (Author/RC)
