The Evolution of Peer Relations in a Desegregated Middle School.
Schofield, Janet Ward; And Others
This study traced the evolution of students' attitudes toward their desegregated school over a period of three years. A sample group of ten black and ten white children were interviewed at the beginning, middle and end of the three year period on three topics: (1) their reactions to and feelings about attending their new school; (2) their opinions on the academic life of the school; and (3) their judgments of peer relations within the school. Ratings of the school and its academic program were generally very positive, although they declined significantly over time. Answers to the peer relation question indicated that students perceived both a decrease in positive relations and a decrease in negative relations over time. (Author/EB)
