Office for Civil Rights. Annual Report to Congress, Fiscal Year 1993.
Office for Civil Rights (ED), Washington, DC.
The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) enforces the laws that prevent discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, sex, disability, and age in America's schools, colleges, and universities. To gauge how the department is fulfilling that mission, a description of the OCR's policy-guidance efforts, complaint investigations, and enforcement activities from October 1, 1992, through September 30, 1993, is provided here. The report focuses on: OCR policy guidance on age and race discrimination; the impact of complaint investigations on elementary, secondary, and postsecondary students' lives; race-targeted scholarships; the effect of compliance reviews; complaint resolution; complaint workload; disability complaints; and other complaint activities, such as magnet-schools assistance programs, vocational education, administrative litigation, higher education desegregation, technical assistance, and new publications. Some of the future goals of the OCR are likewise detailed, including OCR priorities, civil rights cases and policy, and management reform. Four appendices list statutory responsibilities and federal relationships, issues on staffing and budgeting, publications of the OCR, and addresses and telephone numbers of regional OCR offices.
