Detroit High School Profiles: Criteria-Based Monitoring of Desegregation.
Harris, Kenneth A.; Dowe, Ronald R.
A criterion-based assessment procedure was used to evaluate the success of court-ordered desegregation and educational programs in Detroit, Michigan. A monitoring commission was appointed to effect this assessment. This report begins by describing the commission and assessment procedures. The next portion of the report is devoted to materials which outline the criteria the commission used to assess high schools. The materials are divided into three sections: broad criteria, minimal criteria for the initial assessment, and descriptions of staff action for further assessment of individual schools. This is followed by graphs and tables of data used as examples of high school assessment profiles. Newspaper clippings and court memoranda pertaining to school desegregation are also included. (MK)
