DESEGREGATING CITY SCHOOLS.
FISCHER, JOHN H.
ALTHOUGH THE ISSUE OF DE JURE SEGREGATION SEEMS TO BE SETTLED, THE DIFFICULTIES ASSOCIATED WITH DE FACTO SEPARATION OF THE RACES ARE ONLY NOW EMERGING. THE SIX PRINCIPLES PROPOSED BY THE ADVISORY COMMISSION ON HUMAN RELATIONS AND COMMUNITY TENSIONS TO THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ARE PRESENTED AS GUIDES FOR PARENTS AND SCHOOL PERSONNEL WHEN DEALING WITH THE PROBLEMS OF DE FACTO SEGREGATION. SEVERAL POLICIES FOR IMPLEMENTING THESE PRINCIPLES ARE--UNDER "OPEN ENROLLMENT," SCHOOLS WITH AVAILABLE SPACE ARE AUTHORIZED TO RECEIVE PUPILS TRANSFERRED FROM OTHER CROWDED OR OTHERWISE LESS DESIRABLE UNITS, IN THE "PRINCETON PLAN" OR "PAIRING," TWO SCHOOLS MAY BE COMBINED, WITH ALL STUDENTS FROM THE FIRST FOUR GRADES PLACED IN ONE SCHOOL AND THOSE FROM UPPER GRADES PLACED IN THE OTHER, SCHOOL ZONING CHANGES MAY BE UTILIZED TO EFFECT CHANGES IN THE SCHOOL POPULATION, "EDUCATIONAL COMPLEXES" MAY BE ESTABLISHED IN WHICH SEVERAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND POSSIBLY A JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ARE PLACED IN ONE CENTRAL LOCATION--RACIAL BALANCE IS ACHIEVED WITHIN THE SEPARATE SCHOOLS IN THE COMPLEX. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE "PTA MAGIZINE," DECEMBER 1964.
