TOWARD QUALITY AND EQUALITY IN EDUCATION--ADDITIONAL SERVICES PROVIDED FOR OUR PUPILS IN MINORITY AREAS.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
TO COMPENSATE FOR THE LEARNING DISADVANTAGES SUFFERED BY MANY OF THE MINORITY GROUP CHILDREN AND TO AID THEM IN OVERCOMING THE OBSTACLES AND INEQUITIES WHICH HAMPER THEIR PROGRESS, A WIDE VARIETY OF SPECIAL SERVICES HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN THE NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS. DURING THE 1963-64 SCHOOL YEAR, ALMOST $49,000,000 WAS EXPANDED ON 420,000 PUPILS IN MINORITY GROUP AREAS AT ALL LEVELS OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL, TEXTBOOKS, AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS TO PROVIDE THE SPECIAL SERVICES NEEDED TO OVERCOME THE LEARNING DISADVANTAGES CAUSED BY SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEPRIVATION. AN ANNUAL AVERAGE EXPENDITURE OF $117 MORE PER PUPIL THAN THE ORDINARY ANNUAL PER PUPIL ALLOTMENT IS REPRESENTED. AS IS INDICATED IN THE SECTION ON "LOOKING TO THE FUTURE" MORE REMAINS TO BE DONE WHICH WILL REQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL BUDGETARY INCREASES. THE FACTS AND FIGURES BRIEFLY DESCRIBE THE ADDITIONAL SERVICES AND PERSONNEL PROVIDED IN THE SCHOOLS AND INDICATE SOME OF THE NEEDS TO BE MET WHEN SUFFICIENT FUNDS BECOME AVAILABLE.
