Reports an error in the original article by Walter G. Stephan and David Rosenfield (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 1978[Aug], Vol 36[8], pp. 795–804). Two corrections are needed to correlations in Table 2 on page 800. (The following abstract of this article originally appeared in record 1980–02037–001.) Examined the determinants of changes in the racial attitudes of 65 White elementary school children during school desegregation. A multiple regression analysis showed that increases in children's self-esteem, increases in children's interethnic contact, low parental authoritarianism, and nonpunitive parental child-rearing practices were all significantly related to positive changes in racial attitudes. In addition, data are presented that indicate that parental opposition to integration is an indirect determinant of change in children's racial attitudes because of its impact on children's interethnic contact.
