Desegregation. [CEMREL Paper 1].
A clear and effective relationship between the State and Federal governments is needed in pursuing school desegregation. The lack of State and Federal government congruence results in a desegregation policy that emanates from judicial decrees on a district by district basis. In Michigan, inconsistencies among districts and between Federal and State policies have hampered desegregation. Areas affected by these policy difficulties include: (1) educational improvement; (2) metropolitan desegregation plans; (3) Federal funding; (4) faculty desegregation; and (5) bilingual education. Social impediments to desegregation implementation also exists. More analytical research and improved coordination and clarification of desegregation policy are needed. (APM)
