School Desegregation--The Unfinished Agenda. Proceedings from the Daisy Bates Educational Summit (Little Rock, Arkansas, May 9-11, 1991).
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, New York, NY.
This publication presents the proceedings of an educational summit held in May 1991 to honor D. Bates and to examine the unfinished agenda of the desegregation movement. Bates was President of the Arkansas State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) when the Little Rock (Arkansas) School Board voted to desegregate Central High School in 1957. At the summit in 1991, 21 education scholars, NAACP staff and national board members, state and local NAACP presidents, and selected education and legal redress chairpersons gathered to discuss the current status and future prospects for school desegregation. The proceedings are presented in a narrative form concerning the following topics or sections: (1) introduction; (2) conference overview; (3) whether school desegregation is still feasible; (4) desegregation successes and failures; (5) second and third generation desegregation (within school segregation and unequal educational outcomes); (6) school choice (controlled choice, magnet schools, voucher plans, and black male schools); (7) higher education; (8) "Thirty-Seven Years after Brown" (Judge R. L. Carter); and (9) policies and strategies (offers three policy guidelines, six recommended strategies, and extensive recommendations and goals). An epilogue summarizes the conference. Included are highlights of the school desegregation experiences of the summit experts and a bibliography of 27 items. (JB)
