ANSWERS FOR ACTION--SCHOOLS IN THE SOUTH.
Southern Regional Council, Atlanta, GA.
IN RESPONSE TO THE SUPREME COURT'S CALL FOR ACTION IN REGARD TO INTEGRATION, CERTAIN QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED. THESE INCLUDED--(1) THE END OF LEGAL SEGREGATION IN THE SCHOOLS WAS NOT A SHARP BREAK WITH THE PAST, SINCE IT WAS AN OUTGROWTH OF THE TREND IN RACE RELATIONS DATING FROM THE END OF WORLD WAR II. (2) RACE RELATIONS WERE NOT UNIFORM THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH BECAUSE, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, THE SOUTH WAS NOT IN AGREEMENT, EVEN IN RACIAL ATTITUDES. (3) RECENT POPULATION CHANGES DID HAVE A BEARING ON SCHOOL INTEGRATION, BECAUSE BETWEEN 1940 AND 1950 ONE MILLION NEGROES LEFT THE SOUTH, LIFTING MANY OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ROADBLOCKS TO INTEGRATION. THE ROLE OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS WAS QUESTIONED, BOTH SHOULD WORK TOGETHER TO PLAN FOR THE BETTER EDUCATION OF CHILDREN. THE ROLE OF DISCUSSION GROUPS SHOULD BE AIMED AT REACHING INFORMED AGREEMENTS BETWEEN PEOPLE OF BOTH RACES. OTHER THINGS THAT THE COMMUNITY COULD DO INCLUDED CREATING, THROUGH RELIGIOUS GROUPS, SOUND PARENTAL ATTITUDES TOWARD SCHOOL INTEGRATION AND RELIEVING RACIAL TENSION BY DEVELOPING A HEALTH CLIMATE OF OPINION WITHIN CIVIC GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS.
