This report summarizes the results of a survey on the status of school desegregation in 47 major school districts in the United States. A profile of each district is provided together with a report on the desegregation status of that district. Supreme Court decisions with regard to school desegregation from 1954 to the present, the history of Congressional legislation concerning school desegregation, Federal enforcement procedures and the role of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and bilingual education as it relates to school desegregation are also discussed. Tables are included showing the extent of segregation for various minorities and regions in 1976. Sources for the 47 district surveys and a list of school superintendents are appended. (Author/WI)
