It's not over in the South; school desegregation in forty-three southern cities eighteen years after Brown by Washington, Dc American Friends Service Committee( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this study on school desegregation is on 43 cities in the following areas: Bibb and Chatham Counties (Ga.); Orange, Duval, Hillsborough, and Pinellas Counties (Fla.); Cado, Quachita, East Baton Rouge, and Orleans Parishes (La.); and, Richland County District Number 1, Florence County District Number 1, and Orangeburg County District Number Five (S.C.). Based on the reports of the study monitors, the following are among the recommendations and findings made: (1) equal protection of laws is yet not a reality for most black students in the South; (2) at least a dozen major urban, Southern school systems are operating on inadequate and outdated court orders and desegregation plans; (3) some urban Southern school districts are not only segregated but do not provide any form of student transportation; (4) a school district cannot desegregate half-way; faculty and student integration must go hand-in-hand; (5) resegregation is an alarming fact in the urban Southern school systems, aided by local state and federal action; (6) a large number of black students are congregated in the lower academic groups in southern urban schools because of "ability" grouping; (7) widespread student unrest is symptomatic of racism, insensitivity, and injustice; (8) suspensions and expulsions of students are so widespread as to raise serious questions as to the effectiveness of these methods to enforce discipline; and, (9) increased use of police and security guards does not seem to have eliminated or significantly decreased disciplinary problems.

WIC Transportation Demonstration Project( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: A demonstration project designed to utilize and coordinate existing transportation to enable rural WIC participants to full access to the program is reported. The projects purpose was to: alleviate barriers to participation; provide nutrition education opportunities; surmount fragmentation of social service programs; and provide a replicable model that could be used in other rural areas. The outcome was not as successful as anticipated because of problems in scheduling transportation. However, WIC enrollment increased 25%; non-redemption of WIC vouchers decreased from 15 to 6%; and no-shows for appointments decreased from 12 to 7%. Some social services were coordinated but fewer than expected. Because of a staff member's resignation, the nutrition education component met with limited success. (kbc)
