This is the first of a series of planned studies undertaken (by court order) by the Massachusetts State Board of Education in order to monitor the progress toward desegregation in the Boston Public Schools. This volume includes the reports produced by department staff in areas monitored, together with selected statistical and other information provided to the department by the public school system.
