Majority-Black School Districts in the 11 Southern States.
Race Relations Information Center, Nashville, TN.
Little has been compiled relating to research on the 300 Southern, rural majority-black public school districts. The question of how to desegregate these districts has been as difficult to answer as it has been in the big cities. For several years the Federal government has applied a different set of standards for desegregation compliance, but now the majority-black districts must technically meet the same desegregation standards to continue receiving Federal funds. The statistical tables and analysis in this report identify which districts are actually majority-black. On-the-spot reports from seven representative school districts reveal data about the history and economics of the areas, as well as attitudes of both blacks and whites on state and community levels as to the future of the public schools. [Part of the statistical appendix (p.56) will not reproduce clearly in hard copy because of the size of the print.] (Author/DM)
