Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: A Review of Program Operations.
Crocker, Stephen; And Others
This descriptive and evaluative report documents four Title IV-funded agencies that deal with racial desegregation services: specifically, the General Assistance Centers, the State Educational Agencies, the Training Institutes, and the Local Education Agencies. The study is based on a statistical analysis of responses to mail questionnaires from 140 Title IV projects, from site visits to school districts served by projects, and from interview data. The report reviews program operations in terms of regulations and specific limitations on Title IV assistance. The operation of each project type, the role of the regional office, and the role of the federal government are described. The major strength of these programs is that they provide assistance to school districts in varying stages of desegregation. Their major weakness is that their lack of specificity dilutes the benefits, both for districts receiving services and for the agencies delivering them. Recommendations for program improvements are made. (Author/AM)
