Segregation Increases in Jefferson County Schools. Enrollment Report for 1977-78.
Failures of school officials in Jefferson County, Kentucky to desegregate their student bodies since 1975 are cited in this report and substantiated with charts and tables. The resegregation, rather than desegregation, of elementary schools in 1977-78 is documented. It is shown that 12 elementary schools have never been in compliance with desegregation guidelines since the program's inception; that although most of the 28 schools exempted from busing in 1975 have maintained an adequate racial balance, black enrollment at four of these schools has moved above court maximums; and that schools were generally more segregated in 1978 than they were in 1975. Practical recommendations are made to school administrators about how the situation can be rectified. (WI)
