SCHOOL INTEGRATION AND NUMBERS.
MERRILL, CHARLES
THE PRIMARY AIM OF THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS TALENT SEARCH PROGRAM IS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF POTENTIALLY ABLE DISADVANTAGED NEGRO STUDENTS ENROLLED IN INDEPENDENT SECONDARY SCHOOLS. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL, INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS MIGHT INITIATE A SPECIAL NEGRO SCHOLARSHIP DRIVE. ALSO, COLLEGES MIGHT ENCOURAGE PROSPECTIVE NEGRO FRESHMEN BY PROVIDING THEM WITH SCHOLARSHIPS TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS WHERE THEY WILL RECEIVE THE NECESSARY COLLEGE PREPARATION. ALTHOUGH THE NEGRO STUDENT ENROLLED IN A PRIVATE SCHOOL MIGHT REQUIRE EXTRA TUTORING, THE ADDITIONAL EFFORT MAY BE EXTREMELY REWARDING BOTH TO THE STUDENT AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED HIM. MOREOVER, MORE NEGROES SHOULD BE ENROLLED IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS TO DEMONSTRATE TO WHITE AND NEGRO STUDENTS ALIKE THAT INTEGRATION IS A NECESSARY PART OF ANY DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL BULLETIN," VOLUME 25, NUMBER 3, FEBRUARY 1966. (LB)
