Monitoring Commission's Response to the Annual Desegregation Review, 1986-87. Part II: Recommendations on Educational Components.
Davidson, Mary E.; And Others
This report summarizes the response of a monitoring commission to a 1986-87 report on the educational components of a court-mandated school desegregation plan in Chicago (Illinois). The Board of Education was required to alleviate the effects of both past and ongoing segregation by providing educational and related programs for predominantly Black and Hispanic American schools. Overall, the report was very well written and a great improvement over the 1985-86 report. The summary of the major litigation of 1986-87 between the board and the Federal Government demonstrates the important issue of funding the desegregation plan. The following educational components are reviewed: (1) general curriculum and instruction; (2) the Chicago Effective Schools Project; (3) programs in racially identifiable schools; (4) student leadership; (5) magnet schools and programs; (6) vocational and technical high schools; (7) special education and testing; (8) dropout prevention; (9) bilingual education; (10) student discipline; (11) staff development; (12) public participation; (13) faculty desegregation and affirmative action; (14) evaluation; and (15) monitoring.
