Grade 10 Student Attitudes Toward Desegregation, 1979 Survey.
Detroit Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
A total of 702 tenth grade students in Detroit, Michigan responded to a questionnaire that was designed to measure the impact of the city's court ordered desegregation plan on their attitudes. The questionnaire focused on several areas including educational aspirations, student racial relations, attitudes toward race, and school conditions which affect learning. Results indicated that students felt that student racial relations were improved and would continue to improve. The majority of tenth graders indicated that they were comfortable with students of different races, had friends of different races, and helped students of different races with school work. Most white students indicated a preference to attend school with mostly or all white student bodies. Most students felt very safe in their schools. Sixty two percent of black students and 42 percent of white students reported having participated in extracurricular activities. (Author/MK)
