A FIVE-YEAR REPORT OF DESEGREGATION IN THE WASHINGTON, D.C., SCHOOLS. ADDENDUM.
HANSEN, CARL F.
A REVIEW OF DESEGREGATION IN WASHINGTON, D.C., DURING A 5-YEAR PERIOD, 1955-60, WAS PRESENTED. ENROLLMENT TRENDS SHOWED THAT THE IMPOVERISHED AND DESTITUTE PEOPLE OF THE CITY WERE FORCED INTO DEPRIVED DOWNTOWN AREAS. ACADEMIC STANDARDS WERE IMPAIRED BECAUSE OF SOCIAL AND CULTURAL HANDICAPS, IN ADDITION TO SUCH ADVERSE SCHOOL CONDITIONS AS OVERCROWDED CLASSROOMS AND HALF-DAY SESSIONS. WHERE COMPARATIVE DATA WERE AVAILABLE, A GENERAL UPGRADING OF ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS SINCE 1955 WAS APPARENT. BEHAVIOR STUDIES SHOWED THAT--SERIOUS INCIDENTS OF RACIAL ORIGIN WERE RELATIVELY INFREQUENT, DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS WERE OFTEN CAUSED BY CHILDREN FROM POOR HOME ENVIRONMENTS, AND THE HIGHEST RATE OF DROPOUTS OCCURRED IN SCHOOLS WHERE THE ENROLLMENT WAS PREDOMINANTLY NEGRO.
