Integrated Education: A Reader.
Weinberg, Meyer
This book consists of a selection from the articles, addresses and documents that have been published in the magazine "Integrated Education," comprising fifty items appearing between April, 1963 and September, 1967. The items are arranged in six sections. Part One is devoted to the general problem of educational deprivation, and to the question of making public schools into centers of opportunity while ridding them of racial inequality. The similarities and diversities of segregated education in the American metropolitan complexes are illustrated by the selections in Part Two, entitled "Places and Practices." Part Three, "Points at Issue," addresses itself to discussing the dimensions of change called for by the eradication of racism from educational systems, the simultaneous implementation of programs of instructional improvement and of integration, and the amount of authority over a public school that can be lodged in the hands of an organized community. Part Four, "Prospects for Change," considers the factors: professional reform, curriculum changes, innovative organizational change, legislation, and judicial doctrine. Research into desegregation, treated in Part Five, exemplifies explorations of aspects of school integration and urban education in general. The final section is devoted to the world scene in integrated education. (RJ)
