Summary

This report of basic approaches that have worked in successful school desegregation situations contains recommendations of a national conference. The purpose of the conference was to bring together lay and professional school leaders who had experienced desegregation at the school building, school district or state level. At the school building level, recommendations were made in the following areas: (1) developing positive attitudes in parent, community, staff, and students, (2) ways in which to handle discipline problems, and (3) ways to develop educational programs for all students. At the school district level, recommendations were made in the following areas: (1) ways in which to handle discipline problems, (2) ways to develop educational programs for all students, (3) ways to develop understanding and/or acceptance of busing, (4) ways to develop positive media relationships, and (5) ways to develop additional financing. At the state level, recommendations were made in the areas of leadership at the state level, and state level services. At the school building level, the leadership qualities of school principals were noted as being essential to desegregation. It was concluded that leadership is the crucial ingredient of a school district's desegregation effort. The message of this report is that when the giant step of desegregation was taken with a full commitment, resourceful planning and a concern about each child, education for all students was better than before desegregation.
