Schofield, Janet Ward; And Others
This report focuses on the relations which have developed between black and white students in a new interracial middle school. In addition to describing these relations, it analyzes why and how they have developed. A review of the literature on desegregation and intergroup relations is used to set the context of the study. A description of the research methodology and criteria employed in the study is provided. Taken into consideration are teacher and student attitudes and aspects of the school's organization. Specific classroom activities and incidents are used in analyzing the development of interracial relationships. Findings are discussed and summarized and recommendations for improving student relations are made. A list of references is also included. (EB)
