Improving Racial Balance in the San Francisco Public Schools. Summary Report.
Platt, William J.; Harker, Robert A.
A summary of eight research memorandums and two working papers presents the findings of a study of racial balance in San Francisco's schools. Various alternative pupil attendance patterns were designed and assessed for their educational implications, feasibility, cost, and effect on racial balance. The city has high residential concentrations of various minority groups which are increasing in relation to the white population, thus making racial balance more difficult to achieve. Moreover, neighborhood school attendance rules tend to perpetuate segregation. Recommended are changes in attendance areas, school organization patterns, and modification of secondary school facilities. Implementation of new attendance policies must involve full participation of the community and the district staff, and teacher attitudes and suggestions must also be considered. (NH)
