In September 1979 the Board of Governors authorized establishment of a special research committee to "sort out the facts and identify the issues" regarding race and education in the Portland public schools. That committee's report, published herein, will be the subject of this Friday's City Club meeting.

Committee chairman Ronald B. Lansing will present the report. The committee was instructed not to draw conclusions or to make recommendations about the validity of various positions and plans offered over the past year to solve the School District's desegregation problems. Rather, the Board requested the committee to generate for the Club and for the community a report which details the facts and issues objectively so that the community might gain an understanding of the complex matter of racial integration and desegregation in Portland's public schools.

The report identifies a number of issues in need of additional research.
