Strategies for effective desegregation : lessons from research by Willis D Hawley( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A synthesis of existing research and commentary, this book seeks to clarify the national experience with school desegregation and to identify ways of maximizing the potential benefits and reducing the possible costs of desegregation. Chapters 1 and 9 discuss assumptions about the overall consequences of desegregation, while Chapters 2 through 8 discuss and identify strategies that appear to be effective in developing and implementing desegregation plans. The chapters cover these specific areas: (1) facts and fantasy about the consequences of desegregation; (2) identifying strategies for effective school desegregation; (3) pupil-assignment strategies; (4) using school desegregation to effect housing desegregation; (5) preparing and involving parents and the community; (6) organizing at the district level for continuing implementation; (7) changes within desegregated schools; (8) inservice training for school desegregation; (9) myths, false promises, and possibilities. (Chapters 3 through 8 present a revised version of the summary book of the project, "Assessment of Current Knowledge about the Effectiveness of School Desegregation Strategies." The project's methodology for interviewing local and national desegregation experts is described in an appendix to this book.) (Author/KH)
The Courts, social science, and school desegregation by Betsy Levin( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A conference on the courts, social science, and school desegregation attempted to clarify how social science research has been used and possibly misused in school desegregation litigation. The symposium issue addressed in this book is a product of that conference. First, the judicial evolution of the law of school desegregation from Brown V. the Board of Education to Miliken V. Bradley is traced. This is followed by an article that attempts to set out the legal issues with which courts are concerned today in dealing with school desegregation cases and the extent to which social science has been brought to bear on the resolution of these issues. The views held by various federal judges regarding the role that social science plays in the judicial decision-making process are also presented. The relationship of residential segregation and the use of a neighborhood schools policy to school segregation is also analyzed. Another article studies the use of busing when it is used to counteract the results of residential segregation, and the degree to which the social cost of busing ought to be weighed against the constitutional injury it purports to remedy. Several other articles focus on the following: (1) the impact of desegregation on achievement, on racial attitudes, and on aspirations, self-concept and other aspects of the personality, (2) on effective integration, (3) on alternatives to desegregation, (4) on mainstreaming mentally handicapped children, (5) on bilingual education, and (6) on the role of courts in the context of suspension and expulsion decisions.

Measuring access to learning opportunities by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the continued relevance and adequacy of the Elementary and Secondary School Civil Rights Compliance Report (e&s Survey) as a tool for enforcing civil rights laws in education, monitoring quality of access to learning opportunities, and research on other current issues of educational policy and practice. The Committee on Improving Measures of Access to Equal Educational Opportunity was formed to study the e&s Survey and its uses. The Committee commissioned five papers based on e&s Survey data and oversaw a basic analysis of data from the 2000 e&s Survey. The Committee concludes that the e&s Survey continues to play an essential role in documenting disparities and providing information that is useful both in guiding efforts to protect students' civil rights and for informing educational policy and practice. It also concludes that the Survey's usefulness and access to the survey data could be improved. Recommendations for survey administration, improving data quality, increasing access to the data, and disseminating survey findings are included. The four appendixes include synopses of papers prepared for the Committee, overview of findings from the 2000 e&s Survey, the 2000 e&s Survey, and using e&s Survey data in combination with other federal datasets.

Achieving quality integrated education by Willis D Hawley( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While desegregation is neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition for ensuring either equity or quality education for minorities, the evidence is convincing that it is "educationally more difficult" to improve student achievement in segregated schools. Desegregation offers the opportunity to enhance the quality of education, particularly when the definition of "quality education" extends beyond simply academic achievement. This paper describes the characteristics of schools and classrooms in which quality integrated education is most likely to occur. The conditions and practices that seem to differentiate academically effective schools from ineffective ones can be grouped into five categories: (1) teacher behavior and instructional practices, (2) leadership behavior and organizational characteristics, (3) learning environments, (4) learning resources, and (5) parent involvement. When school systems desegregate, changes occur in the community's attitude toward and relationship with schools; in addition, changes occur in the context and circumstances in which instructional and educational programs are presented. Increased attention must be directed toward parent involvement, school size, coherence of the curriculum, student discipline, the development of schoolwide norms which support achievement and order, and the other challenges of student diversity.
