Education and Race.
Lauter, Sylvia, Comp.
This report summarizes information, current in 1966, on the educational status of the nonwhite population. The study includes the following topics: (1) education and race: the racial gap in education closes, (2) education and employment: the racial unemployment income gap remains, (3) education and income: the racial income gap remains, (4) education and occupation: the racial occupation gap remains, (5) quality education: desegregation-integration, (6) Northern education: Southern style, (7) Southern education: inequality for all, and (8) educating the majority of the nonwhite population: the youth. Major findings are: (1) that lower employment levels of older nonwhite citizens are traceable, in part, to deficiencies in their educational attainment, but the younger nonwhite has made great strides in closing the racial gap in education and (2) that despite continued improvement in income and occupation over the years and the drive to extend increased opportunities to all, the white-nonwhite gap in employment and earnings remain. Recommendations, and some suggestions for equalizing educational opportunities are also detailed. A bibliography of data sources is provided. (RJ)
