Bibliography: Equal Educational Opportunity: Myth or Reality?
Mills, Gladys H.
The stated purpose of this bibliography is to assist school administrators, legislators, governors, and others in identifying documents already in their libraries which might assist in decision making at their respective levels, encourage effective action, and enhance the sense of urgency which the great American dream of equal educational opportunity for all creates. Documents included in this bibliography are stated to provide a background of the problems, issues, and barriers; the promising practices and models; and, some implementation, responsibility, and accountability. The divisions in the listing are said to follow the five categories of discrimination: ethnic/racial background, economic status, sex, age, and exceptional needs. Also included is a section on finance. Because of the overlapping nature of most materials included, it is suggested in the bibliography that the entire bibliography be examined, rather than an examination of only the particular area of interest. Loan copies of the cited publications may be available from local public, university, or state libraries. Purchase copies can be ordered from the sources shown. In the case of an ERIC publication (i.e. those cited documents with ED numbers shown at end of document), the local library may have the original document and/or the ERIC microfiche. (Author/JM)
