An Educational Plan for Voluntary, Cooperative Desegregation of Schools in the St. Louis, Missouri Metropolitan Area.
Foote, Edward T.
This educational plan for voluntary, cooperative school desegregation was designed to provide the St. Louis, Missouri Public School System with strategies for coping with desegregation effects, such as declining enrollments, teacher layoffs, and school closings. The primary components of the plan include: (1) permissive, interdistrict transfers on to existing programs that already have available space when the transfer would decrease racial segregation; (2) specialized magnet schools or programs that could be either full-time or part-time; and (3) educational programs designed to promote constructive experiences for students of different races in nonschool educational settings. Other factors considered in the development of the plan were criteria for student, teacher and administrator involvement, transportation, administrative coordination, and financing. The plan is described as six years in length; implementation is to be accomplished in two phases. (JCD)
