Abstract

Presents the report submitted to the court during the 1996 Liddell hearings, which is divided into 2 parts and revised to incorporate points raised during W. T. Trent's testimony on March 19, 1996. Part 1 analyzes the effects of race on student achievement and is based on data supplied by the St. Louis Public School District, cohort files covering 4 cohorts of students, and call-in enrollment data files. Data for the effects of race, student background, prior test scores, school characteristics, and poverty on reading and mathematics achievement for 5th and 8th graders is included. Part 2 draws on national survey data, and focuses on the effects of race on education, employment, and attitudes. The policy implications of both sets of findings are discussed.
