Special Field Reports on School Desegregation Projects: Hartford, Forrest City, Bernalillo, Dade County.
Ralston, Carolyn; Lewis, Ann
These reports of the National Center for Research and Information on Equal Educational Opportunity analyze four school districts differing demographically, geographically, and in terms of local history in order to gather information on the ongoing desegregation projects in these areas. Field trips were made to Hartford, Connecticut, Dade County, Florida, Bernalillo, New Mexico, and Forrest City, Arkansas. The experimental program in Hartford involved busing 200 elementary out of the city to suburban school systems. In Dade County, a human relations program was set up, in which faculty desegregation was emphasized. The Bernalillo schools instituted an inservice program to increase cultural awareness for teachers--there being large numbers of Indians and Mexican Americans in New Mexico. After the Forrest City public schools desegregated, workshops for teachers, administrators, supervisors, and counselors were created. (Authors/JW)
