This chapter explores the experiences of graduates of integrated high schools and why they believe these experiences change them. Results from qualitative research suggest that most graduates of desegregation say their experiences in racially diverse schools made them more comfortable in their interactions with people of other racial and ethnic backgrounds. When they were in high school, the graduates believed their desegregated public schools were preparing them for a more racially integrated society. When they graduated, however, they learned that in fact this was not the case.
