Jefferson County Schools Reduce Teacher Segregation. Non-Teaching Staff Far From Singleton Goals. A Report on 1977-78 Assignments.
In this report, progress made since 1975 in the desegregation of faculty and staff of schools in Jefferson County, Kentucky, is described in light of the Singleton standard. Although overall progress towards teacher and administrator desegregation is evidenced, it is shown that black teachers are still significantly underutilized in the high schools. The absence of teacher desegregation in vocational schools and of black administrators in some middle schools is documented. It is recommended that school officials give high priority to achieving a more representative ratio of black professional employees to the proportion of black students. Based on data which show that desegregation among professionals has been much faster than that among nonprofessional workers, the report criticizes school officials for their slowness and accuses them of tokenism.
