These proceedings are a record of the dialogue and presentations that took place at the National Policy Conference on Education for Blacks. Papers and speeches were presented on a variety of subjects stated to be central to the issues of whether education for black people in America is adequate; and whether it must be radically changed. The major papers, prepared to address seven central issues, and the discussions from the workshops on those issues, are summarized herein, along with the speeches and a special session held at the request of a group of the conferees. The seven central issues are: legal aspects of education, school finance, students' rights, community involvement, early childhood education, elementary and secondary education, and post-secondary education. The major speakers were: Representative Louis Stokes, Kenneth B. Clark, Arthur A. Fletcher, Carl B. Stokes, Nathaniel R. Jones, and Vivian W. Henderson. Also included are a statement by the project director, Bernard C. Watson, the conference program, and an "Appendix" focusing on the "occupational and geographical breakdown of conference participants." (Author/JM)
