The Role of the Community in the School Desegregation/Integration Process: A Collection of Working Papers.
National Conference of Christians and Jews, New York, NY.
In this document various aspects of community response to school desegregation are considered. General themes presented are the role of the community in the integration process as well as some ways in which the process can be facilitated by purposeful organization. A Checklist for Assessing School Desegregation Plans serves as an instrument whereby a layperson can examine the components of a school desegregation plan for equity and quality. Working papers from the National Center for Quality Integrated Education, based on a variety of locally produced materials, examine the sequential stages of the community's role in school integration. This role includes developing the public position statement, coalescing for peaceful desegregation, organizing and programming in preparation for the implementation of the plan, the pre-order stage, use of federal funds to aid a smooth transition, and some implementation day activities. Two case studies highlight community desegregation experiences. The role of the churches and the religious community is another subject discussed in this document which includes a section on written and organizational resources. It is useful for formal and informal community organizations, group coalitions, and individuals who wish to participate in the process of school desegregation. (Author/GC)
