New York State Education Dept., Albany.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
THIS POSITION PAPER REAFFIRMS THE DETERMINATION OF THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK TO ELIMINATE RACIAL SEGREGATION IN THE SCHOOLS OF THE STATE. TOWARD THIS OBJECTIVE, A SET OF GUIDING PRINCIPLES ARE OFFERED FOR USE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOCAL POLICIES AND PLANS. THIRTEEN RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ATTAINING INTEGRATED EDUCATION INCLUDE (1) ESTABLISHING SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AREAS THAT ARE BASED ON A CROSS-SECTION OF A SCHOOL DISTRICT'S POPULATION, (2) DEVELOPING A DISTRICT PLAN FOR RACIAL BALANCE, AND (3) EMPHASIZING THE INITIATION OF ANTI-SEGREGATION STEPS BY OTHER PUBLIC AND PRIVATE AGENCIES. ALSO RECOMMENDED ARE INTERDISTRICT COOPERATION TO BE FACILITATED BY LEGISLATION AND INCREASED APPROPRIATIONS FOR SCHOOL FINANCING. IN ADDITION, TEACHING MATERIALS SHOULD REFLECT THE CULTURAL AND ETHNIC DIVERSITY OF AMERICAN LIFE, AND PRESERVICE AND INSERVICE TRAINING IN THE SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS OF INTEGRATION SHOULD BE OFFERED FOR ALL WHO ARE CONCERNED WITH THE SCHOOLS. THE ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL SEGREGRATION IS CONSIDERED A NECESSITY IF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES ARE TO BE ACHIEVED. (NH)
