Washington Education Association's Policy on De Facto Segregation in Washington State.
Washington Education Association, Seattle.
This is the 1970 statement of the Washington Education Association's policy on de facto segregation in Washington State. The extent of de facto segregation is reviewed statistically; the major ethnic groups in the State being Negro, Oriental, Mexican, and American Indian. These data are analyzed and discussed in terms of the causes and effects of segregation. The main body of the report is devoted to the Association's recommendations to the Representative Assembly. The Association recommends breaking down de facto segregation in education, revising curricula, educating school personnel, enforcing fair housing practices, and reforming the present welfare system. In addition, the distribution of racial and ethnic groups is given in terms of personnel, teachers, and schools.
