Just Schools. A Special Report Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Brown Decision.
Southern Exposure, v7 n2 Sum 1979
The focus of this volume is on changes in the status of Southern blacks since the Brown decision, and problems still to be solved, especially in the area of equal educational opportunity. Several articles describe specific events which occurred during the civil rights movement and discuss their impact on school integration. Other authors discuss the history of desegregation attempts in several Southern cities and States, legislation and integration, and the Federal government's changing attitudes toward school desegregation. The remaining articles in the volume examine the influences that legislative and social changes will have on different aspects of education for blacks in the 1980s. Specific topics addressed include curriculum, testing, motivation, financing, segregation and desegregation, minority student suspensions and expulsions, and future goals. Reviews of several pertinent books, a listing of books about the South, and a bibliography on school desegregation and the South are included. (EB)
