Part 2, "Minorities in City and School District Populations," summarizes the developing opportunities for minorities in the field of education, using data from a 48-city survey to examine the population currently served by the public schools in these cities. Part 3, "Minority Educators in Policy-Making Positions, 1974," identifies positions held by minority group members. Part 4 discusses traditional and minority-related policy-making positions, and part 5 refers to the employment picture in higher education. Conclusions and recommendations comprise part 6. A list of black professors in departments of educational administration, institutions offering fellowships for managers of educational change, member institutions of the Consortium for Educational Leadership, and member institutions of the National Program for Education Leadership are appended.
