This case study determined whether there was a difference in perceptions among principals from different quality schools about the influence desegregation, supplemental financial assistance, magnet thematic activities, and increased educational opportunities had on quality in education. Since there was no significant difference in perceptions, this study also examined how the factors influenced the principals' beliefs about educational quality. Two hundred fifty-five elementary and secondary principals from four different types of organizational structures in ten states participated in the study.

The participating principals responded to the Survey of principals' Attitudes Regarding Education (SPARE) which constituted the data for this investigation. The degree of achievement, student dropout, violence, and racial balance were used to determine school quality and constituted the dependent variables. Principals' perceptions about desegregation, thematic activities, supplemental financial assistance, and increased educational opportunities constituted the independent variables.
