INTEGRATING PHILADELPHIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. A PROPOSAL.
PHILADELPHIA URBAN LEAGUE
PROPOSALS WERE GIVEN TO IMPROVE THE INTEGRATION OF PHILADEPHIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THERE SHOULD BE A REORGANIZATION OF THE GRADE SYSTEMS INTO A PRIMARY SCHOOL (K-4), A MIDDLE SCHOOL (5-8) AND SENIOR GRADES (9-12). THE SCHOOLS WOULD BE GROUPED IN EDUCATIONAL CLUSTERS WITH THREE OR MORE SCHOOLS UNDER ONE ADMINISTRATOR. CURRICULUM MODIFICATIONS SHOULD INCLUDE INTENSIVE REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION AND A CONSIDERATION OF TEACHER ATTITUDES. TEACHING MATERIALS SHOULD TREAT MINORITIES FAIRLY AND TEXTBOOKS AND MATERIALS SHOULD BE CHOSEN WHICH WOULD FURTHER HUMAN RELATIONS. EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH MUST BE COORDINATED AND INTENSIFIED. TEACHERS SHOULD BE PLACED ACCORDING TO THE NEED OF THE SCHOOLS. NEGROES SHOULD BE CONSIDERED FAIRLY FOR PROMOTION. FACULTIES SHOULD BE PROVIDED WITH IN-SERVICE TRAINING IN INTERGROUP RELATIONS AND TEACHING SKILLS. THEY ALSO MUST BE FULLY COMMITTED TO THE PROGRAM OF EQUAL EDUCATION IF THE PROGRAM IS TO WORK. CHARTS AND TABLES PERTAINING TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE SHOWN IN THE APPENDIX.
