Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity.
The hearings before the Senate Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity concerning "Desegregation under the law" conclude with Part 3E, which features a discussion of the Preyer-Spong Bill. Part 4 is concerned with "Mexican American education." Presentations focus on the issues of educational resources allocation, including the distribution of ESEA Title I funds; and the activism among Mexican-American students and parents, including school boycotts. Part 5, "De facto segregation and housing discrimination," presents evidence paralleling the housing situations in the Mexican American, Puerto Rican, and Latino communities, and relating educational opportunity to residential patterns. Part 6, "Racial imbalance in urban schools," records statements on the urban school crisis and comprehensive planning to deal with it; and also on the problems of implementing school desegregation. Part 7 presents expert testimony and evidence on "Inequality of educational resources." Statements center on the impact of adequate versus inadequate financial support for education, and relevant public attitudes. Part 8 focuses on the problems of "Equal educational opportunity for Puerto Rican children." The public education system of Puerto Rico is contrasted with the urban schools serving mainland Puerto Rican students. For related documents, see ED 045 795, UD 011 767, and UD 011 789. (JM)
