THE HEAT IN OUR KITCHEN.
HOWE, HAROLD, II
WITH THEIR PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE AND POSITIONS OF INFLUENCE, EDUCATIONAL LEADERS AT EVERY LEVEL BEAR A MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY IN ACHIEVING REALISTIC SCHOOL DESEGREGATION THROUGHOUT THE NATION. THE EDUCATOR MUST PROVIDE A COMMON MEETING GROUND FOR THE YOUNG NORTHERN NEGRO WHOSE LIFE IS CIRCUMSCRIBED WITHIN A PREDOMINANTLY BLACK GHETTO AND THE WHITE CHILD WHO HAS INHERITED THE STEREOTYPE OF SEGREGATED EDUCATION. TWO BROAD POLICIES MUST BE FOLLOWED TO SECURE COMPLIANCE WITH SCHOOL DESEGREGATION GUIDELINES IN THE SOUTH AND TO DEFINE WHAT CONSTITUTES RACIAL DISCRIMINATION IN THE NORTH AND WEST WHERE SEGREGATION DEPENDS MORE ON RESIDENCE PATTERNS THAN ON STATED COMMUNITY POLICY--(1) MAINTENANCE OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN CENTRAL CITY SCHOOLS, THEREBY REDUCING WHITE MIGRATION TO THE SUBURBS, AND (2) INCLUSION WITHIN EACH SCHOOL OF STUDENTS FROM THE WIDEST POSSIBLE RANGE OF SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CROSS-SECTIONS OF THE AREA'S POPULATION. WHILE THERE IS NO PERFECT ANSWER FOR ACHIEVING DESEGREGATION, HELPFUL TOOLS INCLUDE PAIRING PLANS, BUSSING, EDUCATIONAL PARKS, DOUBLE SESSIONS, COMPENSATORY EDUCATION, FULLY INTEGRATED SUMMER PROGRAMS, AND A NUMBER OF SPECIAL FEDERALLY FUNDED PROGRAMS. THIS ADDRESS WAS PREPARED FOR DELIVERY BEFORE THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS CONFERENCE SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE AND TEACHERS COLLEGE OF COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY (NEW YORK, JUNE 18, 1966). (HM)
