Table Hopping in the Cafeteria: An Exploration of "Racial" Integration in Early Adolescent Social Groups.
Zisman, Paul; Wilson, Vernon
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v23 n3 p199-220 Sep 1992
Qualitative and quantitative studies of a class of 208 urban eighth graders demonstrate that loose-knit peer groups encourage interracial integration, whereas cliques do not. Loose-knit voluntary peer groups created by the social dynamic of cafeteria table hopping provide an opportunity for meaningful cross-race interaction. (SLD)
