Racial and Social Class Isolation in the Schools. A Report to the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Research.
The document reviewed the legal background of racial isolation in the schools of New York and described the efforts to eliminate de facto segregation in New York schools. An analysis is made of the extent to which Negro and Puerto Rican student populations are isolated in the New York schools. Selected studies were examined to define differences in educational, intellectual and psychological development associated with ethnic group membership. A critical examination was made of the contributions of school and non-school factors to educational development in majority and minority student populations. Integration techniques initiated in urban areas where de facto segregation was in existence were evaluated. Compensatory education programs from preschool through the college level were assessed for effectiveness in affecting the educational development of disadvantaged children. Findings of this report suggest new guidelines for school desegregation, as well as other ways in which conditions might be manipulated to enhance the chances that all disadvantaged children may experience improved and equal educational opportunity.
