Perspectives of School Desegregation in the Southeast.
Hall, Morrill M.
The future of public education depends upon our ability to effectively involve all segments of the population in the ongoing decisions related to education. This is necessary in spite of the difficulties of involving people effectively in an organization that has traditionally never been concerned about dissenting opinion. Effective ways of working with teachers, students, and the community must be found. In particular, ways must be found of utilizing fully the newly integrated Boards of Education and advisory committees. It is predicted that the public education system is on the verge of becoming the best it has ever been, that the support of public education will increase as most of the private schools established purely for segregation close, and that the showcase of education for the next 20 or 30 years will be the Southeast.
