THE INFLUENCE OF URBAN RENEWAL ON EDUCATION.
SLAYTON, WILLIAM L.
PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS IN THE SLUM SCHOOLS AND PROBLEMS OF URBAN RENEWAL IN THE REBUILDING OF OUR CITIES WILL NOT BE SOLVED UNLESS AND UNTIL WE CAN DEAL SUCCESSFULLY WITH THE "LACK OF CONVICTION" CHARACTERISTIC OF THE NEGRO COMMUNITY. THE MATTER IS NOT ONE OF BETTER EDUCATION AND BETTER HOUSING--IT IS ONE OF OPPORTUNITY FOR JOBS, FOR CHOICES IN HOUSING, AND FOR FULL PARTICIPATION IN AMERICAN LIFE. CONTINUING FAILURE TO RESOLVE THE LACK OF OPPORTUNITY WILL MEAN THE INCREASING BIFURCATION OF URBAN SOCIETY IN AMERICA BETWEEN CITY AND SUBURB, NEGRO AND WHITE, THE HAVES AND THE HAVENOTS. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS STRIVING TO COORDINATE ITS APPROACH TO HELP THE CITIES, THE CITIES SHOULD COORDINATE THEIR OWN EFFORTS. WE ALL MUST BE INVOLVED IN THE CLEARING OF THE SLUMS, THE PROVISION OF DECENT HOUSING, THE DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC FACILITIES, AND EDUCATION FOR URBAN LIVING. ADVANCED PLANNING OF SCHOOLS AND COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY PLANNING IS NEEDED. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM "SCHOOL LIFE," JUNE, 1962.
