24 p. 

This report of the U.S. Office of Education (oe), prepared in response to complaints by Chicago, Illinois, community groups about educational discrimination, discusses some serious conditions in the public schools which may be violations of title vi of the 1964 civil rights act, and which oe orders the Chicago board of education to rectify. The report focuses on the areas of the apprenticeship training programs, open enrollment for vocational and trade schools, zoning and student assignment policies, and teacher placement. It is reported that despite assurances and agreements to improve the discriminatory conditions, progress has been insufficient. Apprentice recruitment and examination methods for indentureships in the building trades have not opened enough positions to negroes, open enrollment policies have not been effectively implemented, and schools are still strikingly segregated mainly because of the neighborhood school policy. Discriminatory teacher assignment patterns are prevalent, with negro teachers and those with temporary certification and lower qualifications mostly placed in negro schools. Oe recommends that the board of education exercise much greater authority to assure nondiscriminatory policies and practices. The board, the mayor, the building trades, and federal agencies should plan and implement within a specific time more effective integration programs in all these areas. A list of specific recommendations follows the report. (nh)
