Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The Michigan Department of Education conducted a school racial census in the fall of 1968. Information was obtained about the racial composition of student bodies and staff by school buildings in both public and nonpublic schools. The 1968-69 school racial census was based on questionnaires returned from 4,538 individual schools which employed 109,304 professional staff to service 2,363,849 students. Of the 2.4 million pupils recorded, 86.3 percent were white, 12 percent Negro, 1.2 percent Spanish-surnamed, 0.3 percent American Indian, and 0.2 percent Oriental. Of the professional staff, 91.6 percent were white, 7.6 percent Negro, 0.4 percent Spanish-surnamed, 0.2 percent American Indian, and 0.2 percent Oriental. This preliminary report gives data on the: (1) racial and ethnic distribution of students and professional staff; (2) racial distribution of students in public and nonpublic school buildings of different racial composition; (3) racial and ethnic distribution of students and professional staff in nonpublic schools by denomination; and (4) communities with 50 or more Negro students in nonpublic schools. Comparison of public and nonpublic school enrollment in communities with concentrations of Negro students is also included. (NQ)
