Report No. 4 to the United States District Court, District of Massachusetts on Boston School Desegregation, Volume I.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Bureau of Equal Educational Opportunities.
This is the first of two volumes of the Fourth Monitoring Report on Boston Public School Desegregation, which was filed under court order. The report covers Boston Public School operations from June through November, 1984, and is based upon data collected by Massachusetts Department of Education monitors during that period. Volume I contains an executive summary of findings and recommendations in each of ten monitoring areas: (1) student assignments; (2) special desegregation measures; (3) bilingual education; (4) vocational and occupational education; (5) school facilities; (6) staff; (7) transportation; (8) safety and security; (9) student discipline; and (10) parent and student organizations. Although general compliance is reported in all of these areas, most are described as containing programs that continue to be problematic. The volume concludes with a brief discussion of dispute resolutions and proposed modifications to the court orders. (KH)
