Desegregation and the Rise of Private Education.
Franklin, Lewis Glenn
This study is an attempt to investigate several aspects of private education in relation to desegregation in the nation, the 11 Southern states and North Carolina. The history of private schools and the evolution of the Southern academies are examined along with the alternative schools which have been proposed since the Brown decision of 1954 and the initiation of forced busing. The past use of busing in particular is reviewed. An analysis of a questionnaire sent to the 11 Southern states public school superintendents on the increase in non public schools reveals a lack in these states of accurate and extensive information concerning private schools. North Carolina has more controls than any other state surveyed, and an in-depth study of the rise in non-public schools in this state from 1954 to 1974 is undertaken. A questionnaire sent to all non-public schools in the state was returned by 174 of 261 schools. Among the findings are the following: There was a significant increase in the number of private schools organized since 1968. In spite of a decrease in enrollment, approximately three percent of the students in the reporting schools are Negro. Almost no involvement exists between the non public schools and the local school Boards of Education and superintendents. Only a small number of private schools are accredited by the state and/or the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. (Author/JM)
