PRIVATE SCHOOLS CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN THE SOUTH.
LEESON, JIM
THIS ARTICLE DESCRIBES THE GROWTH OF ALL-WHITE PRIVATE SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH WHICH HAS ACCOMPANIED FEDERAL ENFORCEMENT OF SCHOOL INTEGRATION. IT IS REPORTED THAT VIRGINIA, ALABAMA, LOUISIANA, AND MISSISSIPPI PROVIDE TUITION GRANTS, RANGING FROM $185 TO $360 A YEAR, TO WHITE STUDENTS WHO WISH TO ATTEND THESE SCHOOLS. HOWEVER, FEDERAL COURTS HAVE RULED THAT GRANTS FROM THE STATE CANNOT BE THE MAJOR SOURCE OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR PRIVATE SEGREGATED SCHOOLS. ALTHOUGH INTEGRATION AND INCREASED FEDERAL CONTROL OVER THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAS SPURRED THE GROWTH OF THESE SCHOOLS, NOT ALL OF THEM HAVE BEEN FORMED TO COUNTER DESEGREGATION, AND SOME OF OLDER ONES HAVE RECENTLY ADMITTED NEGRO STUDENTS. THE ENROLLMENT AND THE EDUCATIONAL QUALITY IN THE SEGREGATED SCHOOLS VARY CONSIDERABLY. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "SOUTHERN EDUCATION REPORT," VOLUME 2, NUMBER 4, NOVEMBER 1966. (LB)
