A Manual for the Evaluation of Desegregation in California Public Schools. Section 1: Schema for Describing the Desegregation Process in Public School Districts of California.
Mercer, Jane R.; And Others
This manual develops an analytic model, based on historical materials, within which the past movement and present location of an individual school district in relation to desegregation can be charted. The use of the model is illustrated in depth by its application to the case of Riverside, California, a community which has developed a program of comprehensive desegregation in its public schools. The initial section concentrates on an overview of the nature of the desegregation model developed. Twelve stages in the desegregation process are described in detail, grouped as follows: segregation--single ethnic group districts, traditional separatism, the color-blind phase, color-awareness and denial of responsibility, segregated compensatory education; partial desegregation--token desegregation, major desegregation; and, comprehensive desegregation--the crisis of decision-making, commitment, developing support, operationalizing goals, the implementation of goals and the evaluation of programs, and achievement of structural and cultural integration.
