TITLE VI, SOUTHERN EDUCATION FACES THE FACTS.
FOSTER, G.W., JR.
THIS ARTICLE LISTS GUIDELINES PREPARED BY A CONSULTANT TO THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION TO AID SCHOOL AUTHORITIES IN THE SOUTH TO COMPLY WITH TITLE VI OF THE 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT. THE TITLE REQUIRES COMPLIANCE IN DESEGREGATING THE SCHOOLS AS A PRECONDITION FOR FEDERAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. SCHOOL DISTRICTS MUST CHOOSE EITHER TO (1) SUBMIT THE "FORM 441" ASSURANCE OF COMPLIANCE, (2) PRESENT A PLAN FOR DESEGREGATION, OR (3) FACE COURT ORDERS TO DESEGREGATE. THE GUIDELINES DESCRIBE THE REQUIRED INFORMATION WHICH THE STATES MUST SUBMIT TO THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION--A SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT RACIAL SITUATION IN THE DISTRICT SCHOOLS, TYPES OF DESEGREGATION PLANS, ADMINISTRATIVE PRACTICES AND PUBLIC NOTIFICATION FEATURES OF SUCH PLANS, AND POLICIES ON BUSES AND BUS ROUTES. THEY ALSO DISCUSS THE REQUIREMENTS FOR TEACHER AND STAFF DESEGREGATION AND THE RATE OF DESEGREGATION BY GRADE, AND NOTE THE ACT'S PROVISION FOR CONSULTANTS AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE. A SAMPLE OF AN OUTLINE FORM FOR COMPLIANCE INFORMATION IS INCLUDED IN THIS ARTICLE. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "SATURDAY REVIEW," MARCH 20, 1965. (NH)
