The NEA Task Force was instructed to "recommend to the Executive Committee a structure and program for the coordination and expansion of the human rights activities of the NEA and of the departments, divisions, commissions, and committees." Their recommendations and a discussion of the forces in American society that make them necessary comprise this report. The introduction explains the relevance of the fight for human rights to the work of the NEA and its members. The first section traces discrimination in institutions against minority groups. The second section describes the role of schools in dealing with the human rights of certain children, teachers, and citizens. The conclusion explains actions that must be taken by the various segments of the educational system to end the infringement on human rights. (Author/MF)
