School Desegregation; A Report Card from the South.
This report provides an account of the desegregation process in several southern states. It contains detailed case studies of five southern school districts (Charlotte-Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; Williamsburg County, South Carolina; Clarke County, Georgia; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Hillsborough County, Florida) and shorter profiles of six others (Annisten, Alabama; Austin, Texas; Bogalusa, Louisiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Norfolk, Virginia; and Meridian, Mississippi). It also includes preliminary analysis of results from a southern opinion survey conducted on almost 300 school systems in January, 1976 by the Institute for Social Research at Florida State University, and the returns from an informal questionnaire mailed to more than 500 individual southerners by the Southern Regional Council. The major conclusion from the case studies and profiles and surveys in the report is that there has been no decrease in the quality of education of blacks or whites as a result of desegregation.
