A Summary Report of Six School Systems.
Miami Univ., Coral Gables, FL. South Florida School Desegregation Consulting Center.
The conclusions and recommendations of a study of 6 Negro-majority school systems located in Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina are presented in this report. Dual school systems are operating in the districts studied, but all have started the desegregation process. Important considerations include past achievement differences, salary differentials, class size disparities, overcrowded buses, more course offerings and extracurricular activities, the elimination of small schools, and educational changes in organization and method. More effort will be needed in recruitment of staff, school accreditation, inservice education, improved libraries, and faculty desegregation. Recommendations are presented for pupils, personnel, courses of study, buildings, transportation, and feeder patterns. A guide to Office of Education financial assistance programs and a statement of assistance available from the Southeastern Education Laboratory are included. (JH)
