DESEGREGATING THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF NEW YORK CITY.
FISHER, JOHN H.; AND OTHERS
THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE EVALUATED SUCH EXISTING DESEGREGATION EFFORTS AS OPEN ENROLLMENT, ZONING, THE FREE CHOICE TRANSFER POLICY, FEEDER PATTERN CHANGES, AND PAIRING PROPOSALS. THEY DECIDED THAT DESEGREGATION WOULD NOT BE EFFECTIVE UNLESS OTHER MEASURES WERE UNDERTAKEN. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED ESTABLISHING COMPREHENSIVE 4-YEAR HIGH SCHOOLS BUILT AT POINTS WELL OUTSIDE EXISTING ETHNIC GHETTOES, ESTABLISHING FIFTH- THROUGH EIGHTH-GRADE MIDDLE SCHOOLS, EXTENDING PRIMARY UNITS FROM PREKINDERGARTEN THROUGH FOURTH GRADE, FORMING EDUCATIONAL COMPLEXES, EQUALIZING FACILITIES, STABILIZING AND IMPROVING THE STAFFING OF THE SCHOOLS, IMPROVING THE RECRUITMENT AND ADVANCEMENT OF MINORITY GROUP TEACHERS AND OTHER PERSONNEL, ESTABLISHING SPECIAL SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS, AND REQUESTING STATE AND FEDERAL SUPPORT, BOTH FISCAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE. APPENDICES, WITH MANY TABLES, WERE INCLUDED.
