DESEGRATION OF THE BERKELEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, ITS FEASIBILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION.
WENNERBERG, C.H.
A DISCUSSION OF EARLIER EFFORTS TO STUDY THE PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL INTEGRATION IS INCLUDED AS BACKGROUND TO THIS EFFORT. THE IMPORTANCE OF INTEGRATED EDUCATION IS EXAMINED AND ITS IMPORTANCE FOR ACCULTURATION AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IS HIGHLIGHTED. CONFLICTS HAVE BEEN ANALYZED AND CONCLUSIONS ARE THAT SEGREGATION IS DAMAGING TO ALL CHILDREN, AND INCONSISTENT WITH THE ROLES AND GOALS OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY. TEN RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPLEMENT INTEGRATION IN BERKELEY ARE-- (1) THAT THE RAMSEY PLAN BE ADOPTED FOR THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS IN SEPTEMBER 1964, (2) THAT THE BERKELEY SCHOOLS BE DIVIDED INTO FOUR EXPANDED NEIGHBORHOOD ATTENDANCE DISTRICTS, (3) THAT A COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM BE ADOPTED, (4) THAT ADDITIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES BE PROVIDED, (5) THAT MORE WELL QUALIFIED PERSONNEL BE RECRUITED, (6) THAT SCHOOL LIBRARY STANDARDS BE RAISED, (7) THAT EFFORTS BY PUPILS, TEACHERS AND PARENTS BE MADE TO INVOLVE MORE FULLY, EACH STUDENT IN THE LIFE OF HIS SCHOOL, (8) THAT AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE BE ESTABLISHED FOR THE EVALUATION AND COORDINATION OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS, (9) THAT CURRICULUM BE EVALUATED AND BETTER DEVELOPED, AND (10) THAT CONTINUING AND ADULT EDUCATION FACILITIES BE EXPANDED AND IMPROVED.
