[Significant Issues in Education - Law.] Inequality in Education, Number 17, June 1974.
Hall, Leon; And Others
This issue of Inequality in Education deviates from the usual format of in-depth discussion of a particular topic to include reports on a variety of significant issues in education-law. Leon Hall summarizes the numerous experiences he has had with Southern desegregated schools and students and relates his conclusions about how desegregation is actually proceeding in the South. In "Remedying Failure to Teach Basic Skills," Gershon M. Ratner offers some preliminary thoughts on ways legal services attorneys might address the problems of the large percentage of children who are not taught adequately to read and write. R. Stephen Browning and Jack Costello, Jr. follow the progress of Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act from its inception to the present in their analysis of how and why federal funds designated for poor and disadvantaged students continue to be illegally allocated and illegally spent. "The Equally Good Off, The Equally Bad Off," by Thomas J. Cottle reveals the effects of economic and educational tracking on two young students from different backgrounds. Finally, Theodore E. Lauer depicts the lack of "Education for Institutionalized Children" and discusses the necessary examination of the incarceration process which must precede any improvement in the education offered to juvenile offenders.
