As part of the implementation of the Joint Policy Statement on Equality of Educational Opportunity, Michigan's State Board of Education conducted its first public school racial census in the spring of 1967. Information was collected about the racial composition of: (1) student bodies and staff by school building and (2) central office staffs of Michigan's school districts. Based on questionnaires returned by 3,374 principals and 63,469 classroom teachers of 1,830,665 pupils in Michigan public schools, this preliminary report includes analyses of the data related to the: (1) racial distribution in Michigan public schools; (2) racial concentration in schools and school districts; (3) relationship between the racial composition of pupils and teachers; (4) trends in racial concentrations; (5) attendance of pupils in nonneighborhood schools; and (6) racial composition of classroom and school related to such pupil and staff characteristics and attitudes as socioeconomic background of pupils, principal and teacher tenure, and teachers' attitudes toward pupils. Data on central office personnel are not included in this report. (NQ)
