CATHOLIC SCHOOL INTEGRATION IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
BERDES, JANE L.
THE STATUS OF INTEGRATION IN THE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. IS REVIEWED. NEGRO CATHOLICS COMPRISE 14 PERCENT OF THE NEGRO POPULATION IN WASHINGTON, YET THE INTEGRATION RATIO IN THE 45 CATHOLIC SCHOOLS IS ONLY 30 PERCENT AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL AND 8 PERCENT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. SOME PROBLEMS IN ACHIEVING RACIAL BALANCE ARISE BECAUSE CATHOLIC INNER-CITY SCHOOLS ARE IN COMPETITION WITH NEIGHBORING PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR WHITE STUDENTS. IN ADDITION, FINANCIAL PROBLEMS AND QUESTIONS OF JURISDICTION HAMPER INTEGRATION EFFORTS. MAJOR QUESTIONS WITH WHICH THE CHURCH MUST DEAL ARE THE ADEQUACY OF ITS RESOURCES FOR EDUCATIONAL INTEGRATION AND ITS CAPACITY TO MODIFY ITS ROLE AS PROSELYTIZER SO THAT NEGRO AND WHITE NON-CATHOLICS MIGHT ELECT TO ATTEND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "INTEGRATED EDUCATION," VOLUME 5, NUMBER 4, ISSUE 28, AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 1967. (NH)
