The Riverside School Study collection is a collection of reports and newsletters that document the joint research performed
in the late 1960s by the Riverside Unified School District and the University of California, Riverside on the relationship
between the desegregation of public schools and emotional adjustment and academic achievements of children. The collection
also includes publications and guidelines for educators placed in newly desegregated school environments.
The Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) desegregated their public school system in the 1960s. A joint team of researchers
from RUSD and the University of California, Riverside conducted a study in February, 1966 to evaluate the effects of integration
on children attending public schools, focusing on their emotional adjustment and academic achievement. The study was also
done to enable Riverside public schools to provide better educational opportunities for their students and produce guidelines
on integration for administrators nationwide. 1,736 children in the entire school district were chosen for the study, which
lasted for six years.
