The Los Angeles Experience in Monitoring Desegregation: Progress and Prospects.
King, Nicelma J.
This paper presents a case analysis of the role of the Los Angeles School Monitoring Committee in the implementation of school desegregation. The analysis provides information about how citizens' monitoring committees (CMCs) work in the desegregated setting, along with the challenges, problems and opportunities they are likely to face. The paper is divided into three parts. The first section is historical and describes the origin of CMCs and the Los Angeles School Monitoring Committee. The second section outlines the accomplishments of the Los Angeles CMC and analyzes its contributions to the achievement of desegregation. Finally, the paper reviews the problems faced by the Los Angeles CMC which have limited its effectiveness, and proposes solutions to some of those difficulties. (Author/APM)
