Evaluation of Desegregation--1970-1971.
Stephenson, Robert; Spieth, Phillip
The main objective of the desegregation evaluation was to determine how court-ordered desegregation requirements and specially funded desegregation activities influenced the organization and operation of the school system and the achievement of pupils. A number of specific questions were derived from this objective. Have desegregation activities succeeded in desegregating schools and classrooms? To what extent have organizational and instructional changes in schools which have been desegregated been successful? What contributions to desegregation have special programs made? What have been the educational outcomes associated with desegregation activities, with particular reference to student achievement? What strategies have the best chance of handling desegregation problems at the beginning of the next school year? What costs are associated with changes resulting from desegregation activities? Are sufficient materials on the appropriate instructional levels available in the schools involved in desegregation? Has there been an increase in vandalism in desegregated schools? To what extent have programs identified as human relations programs facilitated the desegregation process? (Authors/JM)
