L.A. judge orders
new integration plan
LOS ANGELES (AP)-The judge
overseeing integration in the nation's
second largest school district ordered
the school board yesterday to prepare
by mid-July a new plan integrating all
grades but kindergarten in as many
schools as possible.
Superior Court Judge Paul Egly said
in an 86-page written ruling that the
new plan should go through 12th grade,
not only grades four through eight as a
previous plan dictated. The judge said
busing would not be practical in four
zones in the604-square-mile district.
SCHOOL BOARD member Robbi
Fiedler said the ruling would be ap-
Egly said the revised plan should
follow new definitions of a segregated
school. "The resolution of the issue of
definition is the linchpin of the remedial
portion of this case," he said.
He said nearly 300 schools of a total of
713 have 70 per cent or more black or
Hispanic enrollments. Egly considers
them segregated. The total enrollmen-
tin the Los Angeles school district is
EDWARD HAMILTON, a computer
expert who will study the new plan as it
is prepared, held a news conference to
explain Egly's order in the judge's ab-
sence. He said the order "maximizes
the number of schools that can be
desegregated under the state Supreme
Court standard of reasonable and
Hamilton said there are areas where
desegregation is not possible because
long distances are involved in busing
students. Within those areas, Egly's or-
der calls for "alleviation of the harms
of racial isolation."
That would be done, Hamilton said,
by assuring that both mostly white and
minority schools spend equal amounts
of money per pupil and by keeping staff
members and training equal.
TO REDUCE THE distance of bus
rides, the judge divided the district into
11 zones. He said students would not be
bused from one zone to another unless
specifically ordered by the court.
The four zones most difficult to in-
tegrate are predominantly Hispanic
and black areas of East Los Angeles,
part of the downtown-Wilshire district,
and two zones in predominantly black
South Los Angeles.
