PLANNING AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL.
BLACKMAN, ALLAN
NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS HAVE LONG BEEN A PART OF COMMUNITY PLANNING, HOWEVER, A PRIMARY NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCE OF THESE SCHOOLS IS SEGREGATION. THE SCHOOLS IN THE LOW ECONOMIC AREAS ARE SLIGHTED, AND THE CHILD IN THESE SCHOOLS IS SURROUNDED WITH PUPILS WHO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEMS HE HAS, THUS PROVIDING LITTLE MOTIVATION FOR IMPROVEMENT. SOME ALTERNATIVES FOR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS ARE--REZONING FOR LARGER NEIGHBORHOODS, COMBINING TWO SCHOOL DISTRICTS, BUILDING EDUCATIONAL PARKS AND CITYWIDE SCHOOLS, CLOSING SLUM SCHOOLS, CAREFULLY LOCATING NEW SCHOOLS FOR FUTURE POPULATION GROWTH, BUSING CHILDREN OR OTHER TRANSPORTATION PLANS AND USING OPEN ENROLLMENT. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "INTEGRATED EDUCATION," VOLUME 2, ISSUE 10, MARCH 1964.
