Summary

This pamphlet presents school desegregation guidelines for local and State education associations. The guidelines were adopted by the National Education Association (NEA) Board of Directors in February 1980, and are an updated version of guidelines adopted in 1974. Bilingual and multicultural concerns are addressed to some degree. Three introductory sections discuss general desegregation effects, the role of and advantages for teachers in desegregation efforts, and recent court cases. Guidelines are then given under these headings: general principles; assignment of educational personnel; the instructional program; student rights; school governance; the local association; the State association; and desegregation of multiple school districts. Next, factors contributing to resegregation are discussed; these include "white flight," standardized and competency-based tests, displacement of ethnic minority students and educators, and the elimination of special programs geared to the needs of specific groups. In a conclusion, local associations are advised to monitor every step of the desegregation process. Three appendices provide NEA resolutions on desegregation and integration and on student testing, a selected bibliography, and a list of resources available to local leaders involved in desegregation.
