The Proximity Hypothesis of Parents' Support for Desegregation.
Serow, Robert C.; Solomon, Daniel
This study compares the attitudes towards desegregation among three groups of parents. It attempts to determine whether parents' support for desegregation is related to the degree of their children's participation in a successful integration program. It is hypothesized that the most favorable attitudes would be found among those parents whose children were most directly affected by the integration effort. Taken into consideration are attitudinal differences between minority and majority racial groups. Findings are presented, and it is concluded that proximity to a successful school integration program (and to information about that program) might help explain the pattern of increasing white support for desegregation.
