Racial and Ethnic Survey '74-'75.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Compensatory Education Section.
This document, presenting a statewide racial and ethnic survey by determining the distribution and composition of student enrollments and school personnel in local districts, is said to represent the most comprehensive effort attempted by Oregon's Title IV Unit, whose purpose is said to lie in improving the quality of services to target clients, and in encouraging districts to adopt and implement comprehensive integration programs. A section on equal educational opportunity and perspectives provides information on desegregation, integration and the law, state authority, and the state education department's responsibility. Also listed in this section are the components and objectives of the Program Research in Multi-Cultural Education Model (PRIME Model), which is said to have been developed to eliminate racial isolation. The survey data is presented in seven tables that are subsequently summarized. A statement on Lau et al vs. Nichols, in which a precedent for assistance to cultural and linguistically different children was established, is made in reference to Oregon school districts with a significant enrollment of culturally different students. Three districts are currently operating bilingual education programs. Maps, along with county totals, grade totals, school district totals, and personnel totals, are provided. (Author/AM)
