Abstract: The effects of integration in two large elementary schools are reported. In the first year blacks showed severe drops in reading and mathematics. Whites showed less overall decline. The subsequent year scores for both black and white pupils showed a rebound. Integration appeared to be more disruptive to blacks than to the whites.
