School Racial-Ethnic Census, 1970-71 and 1971-72.
Rupley, Jerry, Comp.; And Others
As a result of the State Board of Education and the Michigan Civil Rights Commission's Joint Policy Statement on Equality of Educational Opportunity, a school racial-ethnic census of Michigan public schools was initiated. The purposes of this census were to: (1) assist in the attainment of equality of educational opportunity without discrimination due to race, color, or national origin; (2) aid the State Board of Education in its efforts toward eliminating racial segregation and implementing the Joint Policy Statement; and (3) provide clear, concise, and understandable data on the racial-ethnic composition of Michigan schools to the public and governmental agencies to better enable them to approach the problem of racial segregation in education, and its proposed solutions, with reason. The present report provides data on the racial-ethnic composition of Michigan public schools for 1970-71 and 1971-72. Data were obtained by asking public school teachers to estimate their classroom's racial-ethnic composition. The report is composed of five sections: Special Terms and Definitions, State Highlights, Student Racial-Ethnic Census Data, Professional Staff Racial-Ethnic Data, and a summary. The Joint Policy Statement is appended. (NQ)
