RACIAL AND ETHNIC SURVEY OF CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. PART II, DISTRIBUTION OF EMPLOYEES.
RILES, WILSON C.; AND OTHERS
THE CALIFORNIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE UNITS TO DETERMINE IF THE RACIAL AND ETHNIC COMPOSITION OF EMPLOYEES WAS CONFORMING WITH STATE LAW. AT THE K-12 LEVEL ABOUT 75 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE OF THE ANGLO CAUCASIAN GROUP. MEMBERS OF THAT GROUP HOLD 91 PERCENT OF THE TEACHING POSITIONS, 93 PERCENT OF THE OTHER CERTIFICATED POSITIONS, AND 96 PERCENT OF THE PRINCIPALSHIPS. THE ANGLO GROUP ALSO HOLDS 84 PERCENT OF THE CLASSIFIED POSITIONS, AND ONLY IN THE CATEGORY OF TEACHER AND COMMUNITY AIDES DO SCHOOLS EMPLOY MAJORITY-GROUP AND MINORITY-GROUP INDIVIDUALS IN ABOUT THE SAME PROPORTIONS THEIR GROUPS ARE REPRESENTED IN THE PUPIL POPULATION. AT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE LEVEL, 83 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS ARE ANGLO, WHILE 95 PERCENT OF THE TEACHERS AND 99 PERCENT OF THE ADMINISTRATORS ARE MEMBERS OF THAT ETHNIC GROUP. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAVE NOT SOLVED THE PROBLEMS OF RECRUITING, EDUCATING, HIRING, ASSIGNING AND PROMOTING MEMBERS OF THE STATE'S RACIAL AND ETHNIC MINORITIES ON AN EQUAL BASIS WITH MEMBERS OF THE MAJORITY ETHNIC GROUP.
