Abstract

Desegregation in Riverside provided an excellent setting for testing the conclusion of the Equality of Educational Opportunity Survey (EEOS) (Coleman, 1966) that, with the exception of Orientals, the achievement of minority as compared with White pupils is more affected both by the educational background and aspirations of other pupils in the school and by the quality of the school.
