ADMINISTRATORS ON SCHOOL INTEGRATION.
WEINBERG, MEYER
THE COMPLETE TEXT OF "THE INTEGRATION CRISIS," ISSUED BY THE COUNCIL OF SUPERVISORY ASSOCIATION (CSA), IS PRESENTED. THE COUNCIL STATES ITS OPPOSITION TO CERTAIN POLICIES ADOPTED BY THE SUPERINTENDENT OF NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS, ITS APPROVAL OF OTHERS, AND ITS PROPOSALS FOR BETTER EDUCATION FOR ALL STUDENTS. THE COUNCIL OPPOSES JOINT ZONING AND EXTENSIVE BUSING OF ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS. IT FEELS THAT THE CONCEPT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL IS SOUND, FREE CHOICE OF SCHOOLS SHOULD BE ALLOWED, AND TRANSPORTATION SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR CHILDREN WHOSE PARENTS WANT THEM TO BE EDUCATED IN OTHER SCHOOLS. THE COUNCIL OPPOSES THE DECISION TO DISCARD GROUP INTELLIGENCE TESTS BECAUSE OF THEIR ALLEGED UNFAIRNESS TO CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN--HOWEVER, THE TESTS CAN BE VERY USEFUL IF USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER FACTORS. THE COUNCIL PROPOSES THAT ALL GROUPS CURRENTLY INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE FOR INTEGRATION AND BETTER EDUCATION SHOULD UNITE TO ACHIEVE GOALS, THE VARIOUS PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS OF EDUCATORS SHOULD MERGE FORCES, AND A CONCERTED EFFORT TO ACHIEVE AN OPERATING BUDGET OF $1,000 PER PUPIL PER SCHOOL YEAR SHOULD BE SET AS THE IMMEDIATE GOAL. EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION FOR ALL STUDENTS CAN BE ACHIEVED BY VOLUNTARY PUBLIC NURSERY SCHOOL PROGRAMS, REDUCED CLASS SIZE, A GREATLY EXPANDED GUIDANCE PROGRAM, INSERVICE DEVELOPMENT IN HUMAN RELATIONS, AN ACCELERATED PROGRAM OF SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE, GREATER EXPERIMENTATION WITH NEW EDUCATIONAL APPROACHES, AN INTENSIFIED HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT PROGRAM, NEW AND BETTER CURRICULUM MATERIALS, AND FEDERAL SUPPORT FOR DEPRIVED NEIGHBORHOODS.
