Summary

As reported, the purposes of the Senate's Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity are "to study the effectiveness of existing laws and policies in assuring equality of educational opportunity, including policies of the United States with regard to segregation on the ground of race, color, or national origin, whatever the form of such segregation, and to examine the extent to which policies are applied uniformly in all regions of the United States." Activities of the committee during the first 5 months of operation are covered in this report. Among the topics discussed are those hearings that were concerned with the effects of racial or ethnic segregation in the schools on black, white, Mexican American, and Indian children; proposals to remedy the problems of racial or ethnic segregation in the schools (e.g., creation of educational parks, the pairing of schools, and various forms of urban-suburban and inter-district cooperation); and the particular needs and educational problems facing American Indians. Plans for the future, as outlined, include hearings on school desegregation, special educational needs and problems of Mexican Americans, and causes of and remedies for de facto segregation; investigation of reasons for and effects of racial or ethnic isolation in the schools; and exploration of the effects of isolation, school financing, and unequal resources.
