A bittersweet farewell to the world and the word by the Australian master “The mind is a place best viewed from borderlands . . .” Border Districts, purportedly the Australian master Gerald Murnane’s final work of fiction, is a hypnotic, precise, and self-lacerating “report” on a life led as an avid reader, fumbling lover, “student of mental imagery,” and devout believer—but a believer not in the commonplaces of religion, but rather in the luminescence of memory and its handmaiden, literature. In Border Districts, a man moves from a capital city to a remote town in the border country, where he intends to spend the last years of his life. It is time, he thinks, to review the spoils of a lifetime of seeing, a lifetime of reading. Which sights, which people, which books, fictional characters, turns of phrase, and lines of verse will survive into the twilight? A dark-haired woman with a wistful expression? An ancestral house in the grasslands? The colors in translucent panes of glass, in marbles and goldfish and racing silks? Feeling an increasing urgency to put his mental landscape in order, the man sets to work cataloging this treasure, little knowing where his “report” will lead and what secrets will be brought to light. Border Districts is a jewel of a farewell from one of the greatest living writers of English prose.

The purpose of this study was to identify problems unique to school districts located in close proximity to the United States/Mexico border and to suggest recommendations and future research related to the provisions for adequate funding in school districts experiencing an unusually high influx of Mexican immigrant/ alien students. The study was limited to the consideration of enrollments and existing conditions during the first quarter of the 1975-76 school year in 61 Texas public school districts located in the 13 counties adjacent to the Mexican border. It was assumed the impact of students from Mexico upon border school districts was an area of concern in which research was needed, and adequate funding was pertinent to good education. Phase I of the study consisted of determining the status of the situation in the 61 border school districts. An instrument developed by the researcher was utilized in obtaining and analyzing basic data on students born in Mexico. Data regarding age, years enrolled, and participation in the free lunch program were tabulated by county, district, campus, and grade level by means of electronic data processing. There was 100 percent participation by the 61 border school districts. Phase II of the study concentrated on school districts with large populations of Mexican immigrant/alien students and attempted to determine the impact these students had upon the schools in terms of funding, programs, and personnel. An interview instrument developed by the researcher was used with the superintendents of the 22 border school districts in which at least ten percent of the student body was identified as Mexican immigrant/alien children.
