Racial Segregation among Public and Private Schools: A Response.
Taeuber, Karl E.; James, David R.
Sociology of Education, v56 n4 p204-07 Oct 1983
Parochial and other private secondary schools in the United States enroll disproportionately few Blacks. Coleman, Hoffer, and Kilgore discounted this segregation. However, their analysis of within-district segregation is inappropriate and misleading. If future analysis of an appropriate data set is undertaken, standard analysis-of-variance methods would be better than their awkward methodology. (Author/IS)
