LET'S REINTEGRATE OUR SCHOOLS.
BARTON, CLIFFORD
INTEGRATION HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETE BECAUSE OF DELIBERATE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION IN HOUSING AND THE FAILURE OF SCHOOL OFFICIALS TO TAKE ANY ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION TO STOP SEGREGATION OF SCHOOLS. IN ORDER THAT CHILDREN WILL HAVE A FULLER AND BETTER EDUCATION, PLANS TO INTEGRATE THE SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED. ONE WAY IS TO REDISTRICT SO THAT IN EACH DISTRICT THERE WILL BE CHILDREN OF A MORE VARIED BACKGROUND. ANOTHER WAY IS TO HAVE ALL THE STUDENTS OF ONE GRADE GO TO THE SAME SCHOOL. A THIRD WAY IS TO CLOSE THE SEGREGATED NEGRO SCHOOL AND REDISTRIBUTE PUPILS. TWO ADMINISTRATIVE DEVICES TO AID INTEGRATION ARE (1) TO LOCATE NEW SCHOOLS IN AREAS EQUAL IN WHITE AND NEGRO POPULATION, AND (2) TO MODIFY "FEEDER" PATTERNS SO THAT THERE IS NO CONCENTRATION OF ONE RACIAL GROUP IN ANY SECONDARY SCHOOL. THE BEST FEATURES OF ALL OF THE PLANS SHOULD BE INCORPORATED INTO ONE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN SO THAT INTEGRATION IS COMPLETE.
