Committee activities do not always lead to the making of recommendations to the agency and the committee does not routinely record and track those recommendations that are made to the agency. The Committee conducted a study of public school districts in Georgia and found that, of the 109 that had been subjected to litigation in federal court to desegregate, 35 of these had been declared “unitary” while 74 remain under a court order. Statistical analysis found that there were no substantial differences among school districts regarding integration patterns on the basis of unitary status. However, no resulting recommendations were made by the Committee in FY08 to the Commission or public education agencies. 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
