Summary

Five papers intended to serve as an introduction to a complex and rapidly growing body of research are included in this volume. These papers represent the work of scholars who have studied the problem of white flight long before the current controversy over urban desegregation plans made it a national issue. Starting from very different assumptions, the participants at the symposium are in agreement on two basic points: (1) most white flight is not caused by school desegregation plans, and (2) metropolitan plans would produce the most stable desegregation. The remaining debate, particularly focusing on the impact, if any, of desegregation plans on increasing white flight is the basic focus of this collection. The contents include the following: school integration 'tipping' in Mississippi; the importance, perplexities, and possible policy implications of white flight research; and the role of the courts in school desegregation and white flight.
