The primary purpose of this study was to analyze the recent racial desegregation trends in the school cityJ of Indianapolis, Indiana, particUlarly with respect to pupil personnel, teacher personnel, and school administration policies. Such an analysis would be incomplete, however, without a prefatory, updated history of events that made up "The Indianapolis Story II of desegregation in its public schools. A still third concern of this study was a survey of major legal developments pertaining to school desegregation procedures elsewhere in the nation. These developments have set the national climate in which trends might be further predicted and in which future Indianapolis school policies might be made.
