"In the language of the personnel business, 'All-American' is a code for white--preferably blond and blue-eyed, but most definitely white. It's just one of many codes employment agencies use to ensure that minorities are not sent to jobs illegally reserved for whites. Told that New York's largest personnel agency--Cosmopolitan Personnel Systems--discriminated against minority applicants, 60 Minutes sent four CBS employees with nearly identical skills to apply for secretarial jobs. Two of those job applicants were black. The results of that investigation--and internal documents acquired from inside sources--showed precisely how agencies use an elaborate system of secret codes to hide illegal discrimination."--1990 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. The program includes interviews with two former Cosmopolitan employees, B.J. Levin and Joel Counsel, who discuss their experiences with the job discrimination practices of their former employer. State Attorney General Robert Abrams discusses the illegal hiring practices of employment agencies in New York City. Included is a taped phone conversation between a Dover Agency, Inc. job counselor and a black applicant, Linda Scott, in which the counselor admits to Dover's policy of discrimination against blacks. The four CBS employees discuss their experiences after meeting with Cosmopolitan's job counselors. Beatrice Ruffin, spokesperson for Norel which acquired Cosmopolitan 18 months before, answers questions on what she knows of discrimatory practices at Cosmopolitan. The program ends with Morley Safer giving an update on a previous story on Father George Stallings and the mailbag segment of the program. Chris Wallace gives a personal note on possible racial comments made by Andy Rooney

"'On the money' examines the effects over the last decade of a Federal court desegregation order in the Kansas City Public School District. That order has provided more than one billion dollars to the school system, and allowed dramatic improvements in school facilities and equipment. Whether the money has helped Kansas City achieve the desired desegregation and improve student performance remains the subject of intense debate. That debate is played out in this segment."--Excerpt from 1994 Peabody Awards entry form. From the studio, Lesley Stahl introduces the piece. Opens with various scenes of active children in beautiful facilities. Stahl individually interviews Superintendent Walter Marks, parent Clinton Adams, student Ben Davis, and teacher Carlton Cash. Mr. Marks defends the district's policies and hopes that funding will not be cut based on only a few years' activities. Mr. Adams, an African-American, questions whether there has been any real improvement in education of minority students given the lack of improvement on test scores. Mr. Davis chose to go to the inner city school because the facilities were far superior to those in his suburban community. Mr. Cash defends teachers who concentrate their efforts trying to teach the students who participate. Prof. Barber notes that wealthy areas are given multiple chances for improvement while minority projects are expected to succeed the first time
