Bridging Disciplinary Boundaries (January 11 - 14, 2007)
Following the second round of testing, the qualitative component of this study involved the researcher conducting interviews with sub-sets of study subjects drawn from both the experimental and control groups. These interviews included questions about judicially mandated racial desegregation in the school district.
Quantitative results of the study did not support any of the six study hypotheses. However, qualitative study results revealed differences in the experimental and control groups regarding their attitudes and beliefs about institutional racism. Based on the results of the study, the researcher recommended follow up studies to identify long term effects of the treatment on the study participants.
