The papers, which analyze 19 "core" empirical studies on this topic, include: (1) "What Have Black Children Gained Academically from School Integration? Examination of the Meta-Analytic Evidence," by Thomas D. Cook; (2) "The Evidence on Desegregation and Black Achievement," by David J. Armor; (3) "Is Nineteen Really Better Than Ninety-Three?" by Robert L.

Stephan; (6) "Desegregation and Education Productivity," by Herbert J. Walberg; and (7) "School Desegregation and Black Achievement: An Integrative View," by Paul M. Wortman. The 19 core studies examined in these papers were selected, based on their content and quality, from 157 works that looked at black students' academic achievement in desegregated schools.
