Stone, Frank Andrews
This publication presents a case study of the public school desegregation and redesign program of the East Baton Rouge Parish (Louisiana) School System, focusing on the 5 years from 1987 to 1992. Chapter 1 describes the setting and background, the sociocultural history of the area since pre-Revolutionary War days, the role and treatment of African Americans, and the events leading up to desegregation and redesign. Chapter 2 presents a history of the redesign plan from 1987 to 1992, including school restructuring ideology, implementation, and the marketing of school enhancements. Chapter 3 discusses the school desegregation and redesign efforts through a review of research, media coverage, and evaluations; and it contains field study/participant observation data for this case study. Chapter 4 presents and analyzes findings and conclusions in light of public school issues in Connecticut where desegregation and school redesign are also issues. Included are 4 maps, 6 tables, 6 illustrations, a 102-item bibliography, a list of public school marketing brochures, a glossary, a Baton Rouge chronology, a Baton Rouge events calendar, and the author's letter of introduction to the public schools studied. Also included are extensive footnotes for each chapter. (JB)
