BLUEPRINT FOR FURTHER ACTION TOWARD QUALITY INTEGRATED EDUCATION--RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION.
New York City Public Schools, Brooklyn, NY.
THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON HUMAN RELATIONS AND COMMUNITY TENSION RECOMMENDED PROPOSALS TO INTEGRATE NEW YORK CITY'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS. SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED--(1) COMPREHENSIVE 4-YEAR HIGH SCHOOLS AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS FOR GRADES 5 THROUGH 8 SHOULD BE DEVELOPED. (2) PRIMARY UNITS EXTENDING FROM PREKINDERGARTEN CLASSES THROUGH THE FOURTH GRADE SHOULD REPLACE EXISTING ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. (3) EDUCATIONAL COMPLEXES SHOULD BE FORMED NEAR THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS, CONSISTING OF FROM TWO TO SIX PRIMARY UNITS. (4) EVENTUALLY, EDUCATIONAL PARKS, CONSISTING OF NEWLY DEVELOPED STRUCTURES ON CLEARED SITES, SHOULD REPLACE SINGLE MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND THE EDUCATIONAL COMPLEXES. (5) FACILITIES SHOULD BE EQUALIZED IN EVERY WAY SO THAT THE PUERTO RICAN AND NEGRO SCHOOLS IN THE CITY WILL NOT CONTINUE TO BE OLDER, MORE OVERCROWDED, AND IN GREATER NEED OF INSTALLATION OF ESSENTIAL FACILITIES THAN OTHER SCHOOLS. BOARD PROGRAMS TO IMPROVE RECRUITMENT AND ADVANCEMENT OF MINORITY GROUP TEACHERS AND OTHER PERSONNEL WOULD BE INTENSIFIED, RELATIONS BETWEEN THE SYSTEM AND LOCAL TEACHER TRAINING INSTITUTIONS MUST BE GREATLY STRENGTHENED. PREPRIMARY PROGRAMS OF INSTRUCTION SHOULD BE INTRODUCED ON A CITYWIDE BASIS, SERVING CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS 3 YEARS OF AGE. SPECIAL SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS, PARTICULARLY THOSE FOR MALADJUSTED AND RETARDED STUDENTS, SHOULD BE STUDIED INDEPENDENTLY, AND THE FINDINGS SHOULD BE MADE PUBLIC. A STRONGER POLICY FOR RETAINING MORE SUCH STUDENTS SHOULD BE PURSUED. ADDITIONAL ACTION TOWARD INTEGRATED EDUCATION INCLUDED SUGGESTIONS FOR AN OPEN ENROLLMENT-FREE CHOICE TRANSFER PROGRAM, EXTENTION OF THE MORE EFFECTIVE SCHOOLS PROGRAM, AND SPECIAL MATERIALS OF INSTRUCTION NEEDED FOR TEACHING GOOD HUMAN RELATIONS AND INTERCULTURAL EDUCATION. SPECIAL COLLEGE PROGRAMS FOR THE DISADVANTAGED SHOULD BE DEVELOPED.
