QUESTION TEXT:

"There is much discussion about the best way to deal with racial
problems. Some people think achieving racial integration of schools
is so important that it justifies busing children to schools out of
their own neighborhoods. Others think letting children go to their
neighborhood schools is so important that they oppose busing."
"Where would you place yourself on this scale, or haven't you thought
much about this?" (7-POINT SCALE SHOWN TO R)
