Summary

This document contains three reports dealing with popular misconceptions about school desegregation. The papers deal with quality education, educator attitudes, and white flight. The first paper focuses on the following questions: (1) How does desegregation affect academic achievement? (2) What is the effect of desegregation on the minority child's self-concept and his/her education and career aspiration? (3) In what ways does desegregation influence the manner in which students of different races get along? (4) How do teachers and students relate to one another in desegregated schools? The second paper provides the results of a survey conducted on superintendents and principals from eleven southern states. Educators were asked questions related to time of desegregation, conditions under which desegregation took place, and size of school district. In the third paper, two tests of the hypothesis that school desegregation leads to white flight are offered. The migration data presented here suggest that if there is white flight, desegregation is not making whites flee cities any faster than they have in the past. (Author/AM)
