Unannounced Desegregation in an All-Volunteer Summer School: Sex, Grade, and Ethnic Attendance Patterns.
Lietz, Jeremy J.
Two hundred thirty-eight K-6 children from 19 feeder schools volunteered to attend 30 half-day summer school sessions in a large Midwestern city, prior to any announcement that the school would be integrated. Both black and non-black children were bussed. Poor attendance was considerably higher for the summer session than for the regular school term, but non-attendance and attendance means from before and after the discovery that the school was integrated did not vary significantly (.05) among children of different sex, ethnic or grade level groups.
