The Purposes and Goals of School Desegregation in Chicago; Position Papers Submitted to the City-Wide Advisory Committee.
Lacour, Bernard; Hixson, Judson
This document includes statements of the position of the Chicago Urban Leugue (CUL) on eight issues pertaining to the desegregation of the Chicago Public Schools. In the introduction, "The General Purposes and Goals for a Desegregation Plan," the CUL states its support for the racial integration of students, including some mandatory assignments to achieve desegregation, although the CUL does not necessarily support racial balance in every school. The issues addressed in the position statements are (1) grade reorganization and consolidation of facilities, (2) high school feeder patterns and attendance rates, (3) reformulation of administrative sub-districts, (4) vocational education centers, (5) optional programs currently available, (6) teacher-involved parent education programs, (7) parent monitoring and evaluation committees, and (8) continuation of the city wide advisory committee. For each issue, the CUL states its position and provides a supporting narrative/rationale. (MK)
