School Desegregation: The Problem.
Hill, Milton
In the process of school desegregation, many new and continuing problems have been illuminated. The problems fall into the general categories of interpersonal relations, communication between the races, new administrative arrangements, identification with the new schools and system rather than the former ones, inadequate instructional programs and organization, staff assignment and development, power structures and decision-making, and new forces for educational and social change. Minority students in integrated schools often find that tracking and grouping practices sometimes result in resegregation within schools, that teachers have difficulty relating to them, that discipline is not always exercised impartially, and that barriers exist to full participation in extracurricular activities. It is recommended that administrators, teachers, counselors, and other school personnel receive training in recognizing the harm these problems cause, in avoiding those problems that can be avoided, in trying to improve communication and understanding, and in helping students in these areas.
