New York State Education Dept., Albany.
A collection of 1971-72 racial/ethnic data for the New York school population is given in this paper. Since 1966 such information has been collected annually from all public elementary and secondary schools and is now a part of the Education Department's Basic Data System. It is used within the Department to provide a statewide longitudinal record of school integration. The information includes the racial/ethnic distribution of public school students for the districts of Albany, Buffalo, New York, Rochester, Syracuse, and Yonkers (individually and combined), for the rest of the state, and for the state as a whole; the distribution of black and Spanish surnamed students by location in the state; the distribution of public school students by racial/ethnic origin for 1967-68 through 1971-72; the number of schools and the number and percent of minority students in schools of differing racial composition; the number of schools and the number and percent of black and Spanish surnamed students in schools of differing racial composition; the distribution of public school staff by racial/ethnic origin; and the distribution of public school staff by racial/ethnic origin for 1967-68 through 1971-72. The appendices give the distribution of the public school students and staff by racial/ethnic origin for each school district in the state. (Author/NQ)
