Equity in Public Schools: The Federal Role.
Foy, Karla, Ed.
This guide is designed to be an educational resource on federal laws related to race, gender, and national origin. Particular emphasis is placed on Federal Region 8, which serves New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, but much of the information is applicable to public schools throughout the United States. The guide begins with a discussion of the changing configuration of public schools in the United States and the equity implications of these changes. The next two sections describe nine federal laws and two specific regulations, detailing the main purposes of each. Citations are provided to sections of the United States Code or the Code of Federal Regulations. The final section lists some equity resources to help school districts and their personnel get the technical assistance they need. (SLD)
