Second Annual Report on Status of Racial Isolation in Michigan Schools, 1980.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
This report describes the current status of racial isolation in Michigan's public elementary and secondary schools, and details the progress which has been made in moving toward educational equality and racial desegregation in both individual schools and in school districts. Guidelines developed for providing integrated education within districts are reviewed. Districts identified as having racially isolated schools as of 1978-79 are listed and compared with those identified from the former year. Specific recommendations for remedying individual districts' problems are given. Staff reports are presented for each of the twenty-three districts affected by the State's guidelines for providing integrated education. The reports include information on the implementation of desegregation plans in individual schools, identification of schools which have been declared exempt from current guidelines, and other districts which have no present plans to desegregate. Appended to the report is a brief paper by the National Association of State Boards of Education entitled "Desegregation: Problems, Successes, and Next Steps." (GC)
