In 1987 a project was undertaken to assess the status of African Americans in the United States in the topical areas to be addressed by the National Research Council's Study Committee on the Status of Black Americans: education, employment, income and occupations, political participation and the administration of justice, social and cultural change, health status and medical care, and the family. Six volumes resulted from the study. This volume, the third, considers education, ranging from early childhood through postsecondary education. The following essays are included: (1) "The Civil Rights Movement and Educational Change" (Meyer Weinberg); (2) "The Social and Historical Context: A Case Study of Philanthropic Assistance" (Charles V. Willie); (3) "School Desegregation since Gunnar Myrdal's American Dilemma" (Robert A. Dentler); (4) "The Future of School Desegregation" (Charles V. Willie); (5) "Meeting the Needs of Black Children in Public Schools: A School Reform Challenge" (James P. Comer and Norris M. Haynes); (6) "School Improvement among Blacks: Implications for Excellence and Equity" (Faustine Jones-Wilson); (7) "Counseling and Guidance of Black and Other Minority Children in Public Schools" (Charles E. Flowers); (8) "Blacks in College" (Antoine M. Garibaldi); (9) "The Road Taken: Minorities and Proprietary Schools" (Robert Rothman); (10) "Graduate and Professional Education for Blacks" (James E. Blackwell); (11) "System-Wide Title VI Regulation of Higher Education, 1968-1988: Implications for Increased Minority Participation" (John B. Williams); (12)"Black Participation and Performance in Science, Mathematics, and Technical Education" (Willie Pearson, Jr.); (13) "The Social Studies, Ethnic Diversity, and Social Change" (James A. Banks); (14) "Abating the Shortage of Black Teachers" (Antoine M. Garibaldi); (15) "The Field and Function of Black Studies" (James B. Stewart); (16) "The Role of the University in Racial Violence on Campus" (Wornie L. Reed); and (17) "Summary and Recommendations" (Charles V. Willie). An appendix lists project study group members and contributors. Each chapter contains references. (SLD)
