The First Year of Desegregation under Title Six in Alabama: A Review with Observations and Conclusions. A Special Report.
Alabama Council on Human Relations, Inc., Huntsville.
Evaluated is the adequacy of the General Statement of Policies under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to achieve the basic objective of Title VI in Alabama. Material in the report is presented under the rubrics of U.S. Office of Education (OE) strategy and policies, Alabama's reaction to the General Statement of Policies, and the effect of the OE statement on school segregation (said to be minimal). In sum, plans for desegregation ordered by Alabama courts were less effective than those submitted in compliance with Title VI. Orders requiring faculty integration within a school will incur greater reluctance, if not outright resistance, than pupil transfers. Freedom of choice plans will not expedite school desegregation "with all deliberate speed." The extent of school integration in Alabama's cities is "only a token of tokenism." (NH)
