Freeway Madness

Kirk, Russell
January 1978
National Review;1/6/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p34
The article focuses on developments relevant to racial integration in the schools of Los Angeles, California. Teachers in Los Angeles, have been ordered to serve the cause of "racial integration." Various racial minorities are supporting the integration of staff and students, but the majority of the people are complaining that racial discrimination will diminish the educational program for the children. Although various ad hoc committees of teachers are protest this educational lunacy, the dominant teachers' union, the United Teachers of Los Angeles, is not taking any steps to prevent this. There is another concern in the House Education and the Workforce Committee about the reduction of federal funds in the Los Angeles District, if two thousand teachers were not reassigned to schools outside their own residential areas.
