Reconstructing a High School Society after Court-Ordered Desegregation.
Collins, Thomas W.
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v9 n4 p248-57 Win 1978
This paper examines a student subsystem in an urban high school in the deep South that is undergoing desegregation. The focus is on the boundaries developed within the student subsystem that separate the races. A model for desegregation is presented in which ethnic groups attempt to manipulate rewards and resources, yet protect boundaries. (Author/EB)
