Rosenbaum, James E.; And Others
Journal of Negro Education, v56 n1 p35-43 Win 1987
Interviews with mothers and children from 114 low-income Black families who participated in the Gautreaux housing desegregation program and who attend predominantly White suburban schools reveal that suburban teachers provide more help to the children, but evidence racial discrimination. Neither the children's grades nor their satisfaction declined at the suburban schools. (BJV)
