This study reports perceptions of the Austin Independent School District (AISD) held by various ethnic groups in Austin, Texas. It is based on a controlled sample survey of residents and extensive interviews with community leaders in 1999-2000. The report provides, among other information, assessments of the quality of education provided by AISD, racial tension between students and teachers, reported discrimination in the classroom, and equity of funding between majority and minority schools. Significant variations are found among the major groups studied-Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, and Whites.
