Beyond Desegregation: The Problem of Power. A Special Study in East Texas.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Commission on Professional Rights and Responsibilities.
This document presents the results of an authorized study of reported school desegregation problems in East Texas. It is designed to be of value to any school district in which desegregation is being planned or implemented. The field studies which provided the basis for the report were conducted in three phases: (1) the preliminary staff inquiry, (2) field study by the members of a special committee, and (3) visits to selected school districts and interviews with local association officers in East Texas. In its four-chapter report, the committee (1) describes and relates to the problems under study the geographic, historical, and current socioeconomic environment in which these problems have developed; (2) summarizes its findings, which fully substantiated the allegations that school desegregation, as it is being implemented in many parts of East Texas, is resulting in the arbitrary and discriminatory treatment of black students and teachers; (3) analyzes the environment of school districts and communities that stifles and blocks resolution of the grievances of those who are being victimized by the misapplication of, or noncompliance with, desegregation laws and guidelines; (4) suggests a course of organized action by which teachers can help to remedy the serious situation that now exists.
