Summary

School desegregation has once more become an explosive national issue. Whether or not Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act can be a means for the establishment of equal educational opportunity in the nation's public schools remains academic; presently, it is simply an instrument of the Nixon Administration's evolving policy on desegregation. For almost five years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Division of Equal Educational Opportunities (DEEO) worked in relative obscurity cooperating with school systems seeking help in the transition from segregation to equality. In the spring of 1969, the Federal courts began to call on DEEO experts to prepare desegregation plans for school districts under court orders. Since then, the technical assistance aspects of Title IV of the Civil Rights Act have been overshadowed or blocked by the lack of clear desegregation policies in the Administration, the Congress, and the Federal courts. Whether this is attributable to a retreat by the Nixon Administration from the goal of total desegregation or to a combination of circumstances more coincidental than deliberate, the net effect is that no clear Federal policy is discernible.
