Projection of the Higher Education Enrollments of Ten Selected States by Race, with Emphasis on Six of the Original "Adams" States; Part 1 of the Research Program on Problems Relating to the Desegregation of Higher Education.
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
This study attempted to treat the information gap in baseline data by projecting the total enrollments of six of the original "Adams" states (Georgia, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and Pennsylvania) and four "non-Adams" states (Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, and Alabama). The report is divided into six sections. Chapter One, the introduction, establishes the context, objectives, methods employed, significance and limitations of the study. Chapter Two, "Historical Perspectives: Desegregation and Equal Opportunities for Blacks," provides background information regarding desegregation related to blacks generally and the "Adams" litigations particularly. This chapter also contains a summary of the status of desegregation in the "Adams" states. Chapters Three and Four provide a review of literature relating to demographic factors that influence higher education enrollments and determinants of such enrollments. Chapter Five analyzes the findings of two selected states (Georgia and Virginia). Chapter Six outlines conclusions and recommendations for future research. A detailed statement of concepts and methods used in the study is appended. (Author/MK)
