TACOMA FACES SCHOOL SEGREGATION.
HALEY, FRED T.
THE CHAIRMAN OF THE TACOMA, WASHINGTON, BOARD OF EDUCATION PRESENTS HIS VIEWS ON THE PROBLEMS TO BE FACED BY THE CITY OF TACOMA IN THE AREA OF DE FACTO SEGREGATION. TACOMA'S POPULATION FROM 1950 TO 1960 INCREASED 3 PERCENT. VIRTUALLY THE ENTIRE INCREASE WAS NONWHITE. IT IS HELD THAT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE EXPLOSIVE GROWTH OF THE NEGRO POPULATION IS CERTAIN TO MAKE THE PROBLEMS OF INTERGROUP RELATIONS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT IN THE COMING YEARS. IN 1960 THE CITY WAS 5.6 PERCENT NEGRO. ELEVEN PERCENT OF THE CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OLD WERE NEGRO. GIVEN NO LEGAL RESTRAINT IN HOUSING DISCRIMINATION, A FAR GREATER PORTION OF TACOMA MAY SOON BE TURNED INTO A HUGE ISLAND, NEGRO IN POPULATION. A RECENT SURVEY SHOWED CONCRETE EVIDENCE OF DE FACTO SEGREGATION IN THE SCHOOLS. SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS TO BE CARRIED OUT DURING THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL YEAR AND GENERAL POLICY STATEMENTS ARE STATED.
