NORDOS, WILBUR R.
THIS PAPER OUTLINES RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DIVISION OF INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS UNDER THE EDUCATION PRACTICES ACT OF 1948. THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE OF THE ACT WAS TO ELIMINATE DISCRIMINATORY COLLEGE ADMISSION POLICIES, BUT IT HAS SINCE BEEN WIDENED TO INCLUDE A RESPONSIBILITY FOR EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY AND RACIAL BALANCE AT ALL SCHOOL LEVELS. THIS AGENCY ADMINISTERS THE LEGISLATIVE ALLOCATIONS WHICH ARE GIVEN TO LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO HELP PAY THE EXTRA COSTS INVOLVED IN DESEGREGATING SCHOOLS. IN ADDITION, THE AGENCY OFFERS (1) CONSULTATIVE SERVICES FOR DEVELOPING CURRICULUMS WHICH INCORPORATE CONTENT ON MINORITY GROUPS IN AMERICAN LIFE AND HISTORY, (2) INSERVICE TRAINING IN INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS, AND (3) SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COOPERATION PROGRAMS. THE AGENCY CONDUCTS CENSUS SURVEYS OF THE RACIAL COMPOSITION OF SCHOOLS. IT ALSO HAS PUBLISHED THREE HANDBOOKS ON INTERGROUP RELATIONS FOR TEACHERS. 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.
