THE QUEST FOR RACIAL EQUALITY IN THE PITTSBURGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS. ANNUAL REPORT, 1965.
Pittsburgh Board of Public Education, PA.
THIS REPORT FURNISHES AN ACCOUNT OF THE POLICIES OF THE PITTSBURGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS ON RACIAL INTEGRATION AND EQUALITY OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY. PRINCIPLES, PRACTICES, AND PLANS FOR THE FUTURE ARE DETAILED, AND SPECIAL PROBLEM AREAS ARE IDENTIFIED. COMPENSATORY EDUCATION, EVEN IF IT IMPLIES DELAYED INTEGRATION IN SOME INSTANCES, IS SEEN AS THE BEST IMMEDIATE ROUTE TO DESEGREGATION. SHIFTING POPULATIONS AND THE IDEA OF A "BALANCED" SCHOOL ARE CONSIDERED. THE FEASIBILITY OF BUSING STUDENTS AND THE PLACEMENT OF NEW SCHOOLS ARE ADDITIONAL PROBLEM AREAS DISCUSSED. CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO THE CONCEPT OF THE EDUCATIONAL PARK AS A PROMISING PROPOSITION FOR LARGE-SCALE INTEGRATION. AN APPENDIX CONTAINS A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF PARALLEL EFFORTS AND PROBLEMS IN OTHER LARGE CITIES. (AF)
