Academic Achievement Versus Desegregation: A Definitive Verdict or is the Jury Still Out?
Middleton, Ernest J.; Crosby, Jerry D.
This paper reviews research related to desegregation and achievement in an attempt to determine the effects of desegregation on the academic achievement of black and white students. The review is organized into three sections: (1) the pre-Coleman era which includes discussions of desegregation and academic achievement prior to 1966; (2) a summary of the Coleman Study (1966); and (3) a discussion of studies on desegregation and academic achievement after 1966. Findings of the review support the positive effects of desegregation and academic achievement although it is pointed out that desegregation can have negative effects on other aspects of student life, particularly for black students.
