RACIAL IMBALANCE AND EDUCATIONAL PLANNING.
CONROY, VINCENT F.
HARVARD'S ADMINISTRATIVE CAREER PROGRAM FACED THE GROWING PROBLEM OF NEGRO ENROLLMENT IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. NOTING THE FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY WITH WHICH THE PROBLEM WAS ARISING AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL, A GROUP OF LAWYERS AND EDUCATORS CONVENED TO WORK OUT THE LEGAL ASPECTS OF SCHOOL INTEGRATION. FUNDS FROM THE FORD FOUNDATION INITIATED THE ENGLEWOOD PROGRAM, A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY WHICH FOCUSED ON THE ISSUES OF RACE AND PUBLIC EDUCATION IN THE COMMUNITY. ALSO INITIATED WAS THE HARTFORD STUDY, WHICH FOCUSED ON ORGANIZING THE CITY'S BASIC EDUCATION POLICIES IN HOPES OF GIVING EDUCATION THE GREATEST POSSIBLE INFLUENCE ON THE QUALITY OF LEADERSHIP AND LIFE IN THE CITY. REPORTS ON FIELD WORK, PRESENTLY INCOMPLETE, WILL BE PUBLISHED AT INTERVALS. CONCLUSIONS THUS FAR REACHED SHOW THAT INFORMATION ABOUT EFFECTS OF SEGREGATION AND INTEGRATION ARE UNKNOWN, AND THAT UNINTERRUPTED, QUIET TIMES ARE NEEDED TO SPECULATE AND RESEARCH THE ISSUE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "HARVARD GRADUATE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION ASSOCIATION BULLETIN," VOLUME 10, NUMBER 1, SPRING 1965.
