Racial/Ethnic Distribution of Public School Students and Staff in New York State, 1972-73.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The collection of racial/ethnic data on the school population of New York State was initiated in 1961 with a census of public elementary schools. Since 1966 such information has been collected annually from all public elementary and secondary schools and is now a part of the Department's Basic Educational Data System. The information is used within the Education Department to provide a longitudinal record of school integration throughout the State. The report data are presented in 8 tables. Table 1 gives the 1972-73 racial/ethnic distribution of public school students for the State's 6 largest school districts--Albany, Buffalo, New York, Rochester, Syracuse, and Yonkers. Table 2 details the 1972-73 distribution of black and Spanish surnamed students by location. In Table 3, a percent distribution is given for public school students, by racial/ethnic origin, for 1968-69 through 1972-73. Table 4 shows the number of schools and the number and percent of minority students--black and Spanish surnamed--in schools of differing racial composition. The number of schools and the number and percent of black students in schools of differing racial composition are shown in Table 5. Table 6 presents data similar to that of Table 5 for Spanish surnamed students. Table 7 shows the distribution of public school professional staff by racial/ethnic origin. Table 8 gives a percent distribution of public school professional staff by racial/ethnic origin for 1968-69 through 1972-73. Appendix A distributes students racial/ethnic origin for each school district. Appendix B does likewise for the professional staff. (FF)
