Segregation and Rationality in Black Status Aspiration Processes.
Hoelter, Jon W.
Sociology of Education, v55 n1 p31-39 Jan 1982
Tests the hypothesis that school racial segregation affects the ability of Black students to set reasonable occupational goals. Questionnaire data collected from male high school seniors suggest that Whites develop the most rational occupational goals, and segregated Blacks the least. Desegregated education leads to increasingly rational vocational planning among Blacks. (AM)
