De Facto Segregation: A Tale of Three Cities.
Egerton, John
Southern Education Report, v3 n2 September 1967
This article presents data on the status of school desegregation in Atlanta, Little Rock, and Nashville. Specifically described are integration methods, school population, racial distribution, number of schools, and public school enrollment. The consolidation of the metropolitan and county school systems in these cities is also noted. It is felt that schools in the South are beginning to face problems of de facto segregation which are typical of the problems of Northern schools. A pattern is emerging of movement from segregation to some desegregation and then to resegregation. The major factors in the resegregation process are housing segregation, the growth of nonpublic schools, and the white flight to the suburbs. (NH)
