Burkhalter, H J
The primary aim of this study was to assess the attitudes of high school pupils at English-medium government schools towards integrated schooling. In addition the study aimed to determine which biographical variables of the pupils were related to their attitudes towards integrated schooling and whether the socio-economic status and level of integration of the schools were associated with pupils attitudes. Finally, the study aimed to determine pupils' perceptions of the dilficulties and benefits of school integration, as well as to elicit suggestions with regard to facilitating the transition from segregated to multi-cultural education.
