The Impact of the Pratt Decision on Black Public Colleges: Florida's Commitment.
Stanley, Charles J.; And Others
This recital of the status of the several components of the Florida Plan for Equalizing Educational Opportunity in Public Higher Education is descriptive of some of its developments to about March 1975. The plan projected its greatest impact on desegregation as occuring within the first two years of its five-year course, but with the continuing deterioration of Florida's and the national economy, the effectuation of the parts of the plan dependent on greatly increased revenues is not likely. The prospects for a turnabout in state appropriations in the next year or two for the implementation of desegregation are not good. The import of these developments on the enhancement of educational opportunity for black post-high school students, whether at the community college level, or the level of the senior colleges and universities with their graduate and professional schools is, at this point, problematic, because of the exigencies of a faltering economy.
