A RE-DEFINITION OF EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OCCASIONED BY DESEGREGATION AND TITLE IV OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964.
BLAKE, ELIAS, JR.
THIS PAPER REVIEWS SOME OF THE PROBLEMS IN IMPLEMENTING TITLE IV OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964. THERE WAS CONFUSION ABOUT THE INTENT OF THE DIRECTIVES FOR INSTITUTES TO IMPROVE THE ABILITY OF SCHOOL PERSONNEL "TO DEAL EFFECTIVELY WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS" STEMMING FROM DESEGREGATION. THE TRAINING INSTITUTES ON TEACHING THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD WHICH ASSUMED THAT TEACHERS NOW NEEDED MORE INFORMATION ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR THIS GROUP ERRONEOUSLY SUGGESTED THAT THE PROBLEMS OF THE DISADVANTAGED BECAME A REALITY ONLY AS A RESULT OF DESEGREGATION. ANOTHER FOCUS WAS ON COMMUNITY REACTION TO DESEGREGATION AND WAYS OF AVOIDING VIOLENCE, CONFLICT, AND OPPOSITION. CURRENTLY, THE USE OF FUNDS HAS SHIFTED TO TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE CENTERS OR CONSULTANTS. THE PAPER ALSO OUTLINES A SERIES OF STAGES FROM COMPLETE SCHOOL SEGREGATION TO COMPLETE INTEGRATION. THIS THEORETICAL CONTINUUM CAN HELP IN FRAMING PRIORITIES FOR TRAINING PROGRAMS AND FOR EVALUATING THEIR RELEVANCY. FURTHER, PROBLEMS OF DESEGREGATION ARE CLASSIFIED AS THEY RELATE TO COMMUNITY RELATIONS, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION AND ORGANIZATIONAL POLICIES, STAFF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS, STUDENT INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS, AND RANK ORDER OF PRIORITIES. IT IS FELT IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT TITLE IV OF THE ACT IS AIMED AT PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTING DESEGREGATION AND SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH TITLE VI WHICH IS CONCERNED WITH COMPLIANCE. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY IN AMERICA'S CITIES, SPONSORED BY THE U.S. COMMISSION ON CIVIL RIGHTS, WASHINGTON, D.C., NOVEMBER 16-18, 1967.
