CHICAGO'S SCHOOL CRISIS.
PASNICK, RAYMOND
THE WRITER, A MEMBER OF THE CHICAGO BOARD OF EDUCATION, ACCUSES THE BOARD OF DELIBERATELY IMPOSING CONDITIONS AND POLICIES WHICH HAVE SERVED TO KEEP THE TWO RACES IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM APART AND TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST LARGE SEGMENTS OF THE RACIAL MINORITY. HE HOLDS THAT THERE IS A CLEAR NECESSITY TO DEMONSTRATE THIS BOARD'S SINCERITY BY IMMEDIATE, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. TIME AND ENERGIES NEED TO BE USED IN THIS PUBLIC SERVICE BEFORE CONDITIONS GET WORSE AND THE PATIENCE OF THE VICTIMS RUNS OUT. UNDER THE SYSTEM OF PUBLIC BOARD RESPONSIBLIILITY IN RUNNING THE SCHOOLS, MOST OF THE RACE RELATIONS ISSUES IN CHICAGO'S EDUCATIONAL COMPLEX COULD BE SETTLED BY ACTION OF THE BOARD MEMBERS. THE BOARD SHOULD MAKE A NEW START BY ARRANGING A CONFERENCE WITH ALL CONCERNED TO RESOLVE THE CRISIS WITH COOPERATION AND GOOD WILL. WRITTEN DURING THE TIME OF A SCHOOL BOYCOTT (FEBRUARY 1964), THE ARTICLE CONCLUDES THAT DEMONSTRATIONS AND SCHOOL BOYCOTTS ARE A DIRECT REACTION TO OUR FAILURE AND LAGGARDNESS TO MEET THE ISSUE SQUARELY.
