RESPONSE TO THE WASHINGTON URBAN LEAGUE REPORT ENTITLED "INTEGRATION AND THE WASHINGTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS."
HANSEN, CARL F.
IT IS HELD THAT DEFACTO SEGREGATION AND INTEGRATION HAVE NO PRACTICAL DEFINITIONS. RACIAL BALANCE ALONE DOES NOT OFFER AN ACCURATE DEFINITION OF SEGREGATION. STATISTICS WERE PRESENTED ON THE DEGREE OF RACIAL SEGREGATION IN THE DISTRICT. THE INFLUX OF NEW PUPILS FROM OUTSIDE THE DISTRICT WAS CONSIDERED. SCHOOL POLICIES AND PRACTICES IN RELATION TO RACE INCLUDED DISCUSSION OF ASSIGNMENT OF PUPILS, ASSIGNMENT OF TEACHERS AND SCHOOL OFFICERS, MANAGEMENT OF INSTRUCTION, DISTRIBUTION OF RESOURCES, AND PROGRAMS TO BROADEN CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES. PREVIOUS METHODS USED IN ATTEMPTS TO END RACIAL IMBALANCE IN WASHINGTON SCHOOLS WERE EVALUATED. THESE INCLUDED THE OPEN-SCHOOL POLICY AND BUSING OF CHILDREN, BOUNDARY CHANGES FOR ACHIEVING BETTER RACIAL BALANCE, SITE SELECTION FOR BIRACIAL SCHOOL MEMBERSHIP, EDUCATIONAL PARKS, AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL IDEA. A 14-POINT PROGRAM FOR MEETING THE PROBLEMS OF DEFACTO SEGREGATION WAS PROPOSED.
