School desegregation : a report card from the South by John Egerton( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an account of the desegregation process in several southern states. It contains detailed case studies of five southern school districts (Charlotte-Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; Williamsburg County, South Carolina; Clarke County, Georgia; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Hillsborough County, Florida) and shorter profiles of six others (Annisten, Alabama; Austin, Texas; Bogalusa, Louisiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Norfolk, Virginia; and Meridian, Mississippi). It also includes preliminary analysis of results from a southern opinion survey conducted on almost 300 school systems in January, 1976 by the Institute for Social Research at Florida State University, and the returns from an informal questionnaire mailed to more than 500 individual southerners by the Southern Regional Council. The major conclusion from the case studies and profiles and surveys in the report is that there has been no decrease in the quality of education of blacks or whites as a result of desegregation.

Education and desegregation in eight schools by John Egerton( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What goes on inside desegregated schools and how desegregation has affected children's education are two questions addressed in this publication. In an effort to focus upon these questions, eight recently integrated schools were examined by the author. They include public schools from the elementary to the high school level in both rural and urban areas. Schools in Denver, Dayton, Boston, rural Mississippi, Miami, San Francisco, rural Kentucky, and Nashville are discussed. The overriding goal in all of these eight schools is planned cooperative change. Examples of educational leadership at the school and classroom level are cited, with individual efforts by both principals and teachers described. General issues discussed include attendance, student achievement, existing racial barriers, teacher response to minority children, approaches to individualization, and the supervision of white teachers by black administrators or principals. Much of the information is presented in the form of informal observations and interviews with students, teachers, and principals. Though numerous problems are still apparent in these schools, this report gives a generally positive picture of the effects of desegregation on the education of affected students. (Gc)
