The student pushout : victim of continued resistance to desegregation by Washington, Dc Robert F. Kennedy Memorial( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report deals with one portion of the South's youth population--the pushout--those young people who have been expelled or suspended from school or who, because of intolerable hostitlity directed against them, finally quit school. Several years ago, reports began to be received of in-school discrimination and of an escalating rate of suspensions and expulsions, especially among black students, both nationally and in the South. As reports increased, a fact-gathering effort was initiated, motivated by the painful awareness that personal growth and future economic opportunity of young people is jeopardized by such practices. The staff of the Southern Regional Council's School Desegregation Project talked with students, teachers, administrators, government and community leaders and lawmakers in eight Southern States to glean attitudes, experiences and suggestions. In four of those States, investigative journalists went to school districts where they talked with educators and community leaders about rules, regulations, practices and disciplinary methods, as well as educational alternatives to pushing students out of school. Supplemental information was gathered in three additional states, and extensive research undertaken at the federal level by the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial. As the impact of court decisions affecting school desegregation begins to be felt more fully across the nation, it is the South that has a unique opportunity to learn from the bitter experience of its past mistakes and to assume a strong role of national leadership: hence it was the focus of this introductory report.

Augusta, Georgia, and Jackson State University : southern episodes in a national tragedy by Southern Regional Council( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an indepth study of the events and psychology in the past of Augusta, Georgia which help explain the violence and the killing of six Blacks on the night of May 11, 1970. The second study in this report deals with the events and killings of two young black men at Jackson State College on May 15, 1970. These two events had several points in common not only with each other, but also with similar tragedies across the nation. These include: (1) they occurred in an atmosphere of hostility encouraged by inflammatory statements of leaders, statements which exacerbate tensions between groups and which seem to approve the over-use of police and military force; (2) both instances reflected not only new, intolerable pressures, but long neglected problems; (3) death and injuries in both instances resulted from gunfire from heavy-calibre ammunition; and (4) in both instances, questions have been raised about police attitudes toward black people and the general principle of the right of protest, and about the effectiveness of the riot control training of the police.

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

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 99 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.

Testing ... grouping : the new segregation in Southern schools? by Roger Mills( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a child takes a standardized test measuring ability or achievement, the results of that test may well determine the kind of education he is going to get. When school personnel select certain tests, administer them, and assign students to groups according to their scores on these tests, are they doing it in such a way that the end results are educationally sound for all children? The purpose of this handbook is to help answer this question. It explains what testing is all about and offers suggestions on how the testing and grouping of children in a school system may be examined. Information is provided in these areas: (1) ability grouping and tracking, (2) testing, (3) how to find out about ability grouping and tracking in a school system, (4) how to begin the move for reform in a system, and (5) ability grouping and the law. Appendices contain a section on the prevalence of ability grouping across the South, "Ability Grouping: Status, Impact, and Alternatives" by Miriam Bryan, descriptions of tests commonly used in ability grouping, and a glossary of measurement terms used in this handbook.

Black belt schools : beyond desegregation by Donald Ross Green( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1964, four professors from the division of teacher education at emory university visited school systems in burke county, georgia, and edgefield county, south carolina. In this subsequent report, the authors contend that the act of desegregation does not in and of itself remove the omnipresent problem of poor educational opportunity in the south, nor will more of what is currently being done do other than continue the undesirable "status quo." After describing the social, cultural, and economic climates in which these schools operate, the authors make four specific recommendations intended to raise the total educational level of the school districts. These include--nursery-kindergarten units for children ages 3 through 5, (2) the use of boarding units for children in grades 4, 5, and 6, (3) the employment of senior high school students in the system, so that all students from the 10 grade up who want or are interested in work will have an opportunity to earn at least $50 a month as a part of their school program, and (4) an intercounty and college (or university) cooperative program involving a coordinated plan of consolidation, joint purchasing, and joint inservice and preservice to teacher training programs in cooperation with the college. The authors indicate that these are by no means the only solutions to a critical problems, but they are within the range of practicality. (Br)
