State Leadership Toward Desegregating Education: A Positive Future. A Report of the National Project and Task Force on Desegregation Strategies.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Project and Task Force on Desegregation Studies.; National Association of State Boards of Education, Washington, DC.; Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
The National Task Force on Desegregation Strategies was established in 1977 to encourage State leadership to become involved in fostering integrated education. This report summarizes the findings and recommendations of the Task Force after three years of work. The Task Force identified three outstanding tasks that must be approached simultaneously in order to desegregate schools: the elimination of urban segregation through educational planning and housing policy, the extension of the States' responsibility for desegregation, and the development of new approaches to attack racial and ethnic bias. Nine proposals were made to assist States in carrying out their commitments to desegregation. They called for (1) clear policy directives, (2) commitment to policy, (3) understanding and using existing state policy, (4) encouraging Federal coordination of programs for urban integration, (5) financial and psychological incentives, (6) incentives to increase residential opportunities for minorities, (7) technical assistance, (8) monitoring and sanctions, and (9) public understanding and support.
