SCHOOL DESEGREGATION 1966--THE SLOW UNDOING.
Southern Regional Council, Atlanta, GA.
THIS REPORT IS A CHRONOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION GUIDELINES FOR DESEGREGATING THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE SOUTH. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THESE GUIDELINES WAS AUTHORIZED UNDER TITLE VI OF THE 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT. IT IS FELT THAT ANTI-DESEGREGATION PRESSURES FROM SOUTHERN SCHOOL AND PUBLIC OFFICIALS, "FEAR OF WHITE BACKLASH, AND CONFUSION ABOUT THE INTENT OF CONGRESS" HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE "LIMITED" ENFORCEMENT OF THE GUIDELINES. MOREOVER, THE GUIDELINES THEMSELVES ARE JUDGED TO BE INADEQUATE FOR ENDING THE DUAL SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN THE SOUTH. IN REBUTTAL TO THE SOUTHERN CRITICISM THAT THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION HAS BEEN "OVERZEALOUS" IN ENFORCING THE GUIDELINES, IT IS NOTED THAT THE SOUTHERN SCHOOLS REMAIN "OVERWHELMINGLY" SEGREGATED. SPECIFIC ILLUSTRATIONS IN SUPPORT OF THESE ARGUMENTS ARE GIVEN. (LB)
