BLACK BELT SCHOOLS--BEYOND DESEGREGATION.
GREEN, DONALD ROSS; AND OTHERS
IN 1964, FOUR PROFESSORS FROM THE DIVISION OF TEACHER EDUCATION AT EMORY UNIVERSITY VISITED SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN BURKE COUNTY, GEORGIA, AND EDGEFIELD COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA. IN THIS SUBSEQUENT REPORT, THE AUTHORS CONTEND THAT THE ACT OF DESEGREGATION DOES NOT IN AND OF ITSELF REMOVE THE OMNIPRESENT PROBLEM OF POOR EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY IN THE SOUTH, NOR WILL MORE OF WHAT IS CURRENTLY BEING DONE DO OTHER THAN CONTINUE THE UNDESIRABLE "STATUS QUO." AFTER DESCRIBING THE SOCIAL, CULTURAL, AND ECONOMIC CLIMATES IN WHICH THESE SCHOOLS OPERATE, THE AUTHORS MAKE FOUR SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS INTENDED TO RAISE THE TOTAL EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS. THESE INCLUDE--NURSERY-KINDERGARTEN UNITS FOR CHILDREN AGES 3 THROUGH 5, (2) THE USE OF BOARDING UNITS FOR CHILDREN IN GRADES 4, 5, AND 6, (3) THE EMPLOYMENT OF SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE SYSTEM, SO THAT ALL STUDENTS FROM THE 10 GRADE UP WHO WANT OR ARE INTERESTED IN WORK WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO EARN AT LEAST $50 A MONTH AS A PART OF THEIR SCHOOL PROGRAM, AND (4) AN INTERCOUNTY AND COLLEGE (OR UNIVERSITY) COOPERATIVE PROGRAM INVOLVING A COORDINATED PLAN OF CONSOLIDATION, JOINT PURCHASING, AND JOINT INSERVICE AND PRESERVICE TO TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS IN COOPERATION WITH THE COLLEGE. THE AUTHORS INDICATE THAT THESE ARE BY NO MEANS THE ONLY SOLUTIONS TO A CRITICAL PROBLEMS, BUT THEY ARE WITHIN THE RANGE OF PRACTICALITY. (BR)
