A PLAN FOR ACCELERATING QUALITY INTEGRATED EDUCATION IN THE BUFFALO PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
BRODBECK, ARTHUR J.; LANG, GLADYS E.
EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY IN BUFFALO HAS LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PLAN FOR PROGRESSIVE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL IMBALANCE AND PROVISION OF INCREASED EDUCATIONAL QUALITY AND OPPORTUNITIES. CITIZEN OPINIONS, OBTAINED THROUGH INTERVIEWS, RESULTED IN A MODIFICATION OF THE "4-4-4 PLAN" (DIVISION OF GRADES 1-12 INTO THREE SCHOOLS, EACH WITH FOUR GRADES) WITH EMPHASIS ON EQUALIZING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IN GRADES K-4. BASIC GOALS OF THIS PLAN ARE EQUALIZING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, GUIDING THE INDIVIDUAL AND HIS CAREER, AND PROMOTING DESEGREGATION AND SELF-ESTEEM. AS AN INITIAL PLANNING STEP, IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE CAMPUS SCHOOL LOCATED AT THE STATE COLLEGE OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO BE UTILIZED AS A SMALL EDUCATIONAL PARK TO PROMOTE RACIAL BALANCE. SPECIFIC STEPS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR TEACHER INTEGRATION AND FOR COMPLETE GRADE REORGANIZATION OF THE SYSTEM. UPON REORGANIZATION, EACH SCHOOL WILL HAVE BETWEEN 26 AND 42 PERCENT NONWHITES AND BETWEEN 74 AND 58 PERCENT WHITES. (HW)
