RACIAL ISOLATION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. VOLUME 2, APPENDICES.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
THESE APPENDIXES TO THE 1967 U.S. CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION INVESTIGATION OF RACIAL IMBALANCE IN AMERICA'S SCHOOLS CONTAIN EXTENSIVE DISCUSSION AND DATA RELEVANT TO THE STUDY'S FINDINGS. PRESENTED IN THE FIRST APPENDIX ARE TABULATIONS OF THE DEGREE OF PUPIL AND TEACHER SEGREGATION IN VARIOUS ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN 1965-66, AND OF THE GROWTH OF SEGREGATION IN SOUTHERN, BORDER, AND NORTHERN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS FROM 1950 TO 1966. THE TABLES AND DISCUSSION IN THE SECOND APPENDIX DESCRIBE SELECTED CHARACTERISTICS OF CITY AND SUBURBAN SCHOOLS IN THE NORTHEAST, GREAT LAKES, GREAT PLAINS, SOUTHEAST, AND FAR WEST REGIONS. FURTHER ANALYSIS OF THE EQUALITY OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY SURVEY (COLEMAN, ET. AL.) IS REPORTED IN THE THIRD APPENDIX. HERE TABLES INDICATE THE EFFECT OF THE RACIAL COMPOSITION OF A SCHOOL AND CLASSROOM ON NEGRO STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY ON THEIR COLLEGE ASPIRATIONS, AND ON NEGRO AND WHITE ADULTS WHO HAVE ATTENDED SEGREGATED OR DESEGREGATED ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. ALSO INDICATED IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND SUCH FACTORS AS STUDENT FAMILY BACKGROUND, TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS, CURRICULUMS, AND SCHOOL FACILITIES. THE REPORT INDICATES THAT THERE APPEARS TO BE AN UPWARD TREND IN THE ACHIEVEMENT LEVEL OF NEGRO STUDENTS AS THE PROPORTION OF THEIR WHITE CLASSMATES INCREASES. CONTAINED IN AN ADDITONAL SECTION ARE EVALUATIONS OF COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROJECTS IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, AND SYRACUSE, NEW YORK. ACCORDING TO THE EVALUATIONS THE PROJECTS DID NOT IMPROVE THE STUDENTS' READING PERFORMANCE. HOWEVER THE READING PERFORMANCE OF NONPROJECT STUDENTS WHO WERE BUSED TO SCHOOLS WITH A MAJORITY OF WHITE STUDENTS NOTABLY INCREASED. THE LAST APPENDIX CONTAINS FIVE PAPERS WHICH DISCUSS EDUCATIONAL PARKS, DESEGREGATION, EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, AND EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C., 20402, FOR $1.00. (LB)
