The Impact of Court-Ordered Desegregation on Student Enrollment and Residential Patterns in the Jefferson County Kentucky Public School District, Final Report.
Cunningham, George K.; Husk, William L.
After reviewing the literature on school desegregation and the background of the comprehensive metropolitan school desegregation plan implemented in Louisville and Jefferson County in 1975, this report analyzes school enrollment and residential changes in the years after the plan was implemented. Data are presented for public and non-public school enrollment for both black and white students, and changes in enrollment are reported by type of school, geographical location, and former status and exempt status of the school. Residential changes for both black and white families are reported by those who moved out of the county, those who moved within the county, and those who transferred their children to non-public schools. Results of surveys of parents concerning desegregation, busing, and quality of education are correlated with the age and socioeconomic status of the parents. The data collected are discussed and analyzed, and recommendations are made for future desegregation planning. Appendices provide demographic data, a chronology of desegregation events in the county, maps and charts of the area, procedures for calculating expected enrollment, interview schedules and results, parent surveys, and statements on school integration, racial justice, and reconciliation by a Catholic Archbishop.
