Southern School Desegregation, 1966-67. Report.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights acquired and analyzed information relating to school desegregation in the Southern and border States during the 1966-67 school year. Data were obtained by the Commission primarily from field investigations (mostly in rural school districts) and analysis of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's files and operations during the school year. Results of the study showed: that the percentage of Negro children attending desegregated schools in the Southern States in 1966-67 increased substantially over the previous school year; that this progress had been acompanied in many communities by a spirit of acceptance and understanding; that more than 4/5 of the Negro children in the 11 Southern States and more than 9/10 in the 5 Deep South States still attended all-Negro schools; and that very little desegregation of full-time teachers had taken place. The Commission's recommendations showed the need for more accomplishments to secure the constitutional rights of Negro students through strengthening present requirements which the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare has disseminated under Title VI and by improving procedures by which compliance is monitored.
