Report No. 4 to the United States District Court, District of Massachusetts on Boston School Desegregation, Volume II.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Bureau of Equal Educational Opportunities.
This is the second 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 the Massachusetts Department of Education during that period. Ten reports, each covering a different monitoring area, are included. Each report contains a summary of relevant court requirements, findings, conclusions or recommendations, and support documentation (letters, statistics, and/or memoranda in support of specific findings). The following areas are evaluated: (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. Following the reports are two sections on dispute resolutions and proposed modifications to the court orders. These also contain support documentation. In general, this document reveals mixed compliance in each of the monitoring areas. (KH)
