Desegregating California Schools. California Current Review of Human Resources, Number 3, November 1969.
California League of Women Voters, San Francisco.
This bulletin, prepared by the League of Women Voters, attempts to summarize popularly used methods of desegregation and to make specific suggestions for use in the State of California. State responsibilities for desegregation are presented against the background of Federal and State court decisions. The status of racial imbalance in California schools is assessed and illustrated by charts. A conceptual model of the stages of desegregation based on the experiences of communities in California attempts to outline the stages of development and the dynamics of change. The model includes the effects of laws and administrative acts, the national temper of majority and minority groups, the impact of local leadership, and pressures from minority groups. A series of case studies present resolved and unresolved solutions to the complex range of problems inherent in school desegregation. Bussing, attendance zones, unification, and urban sprawl are central issues discussed. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (KG)
