PROGRESS AND PROBLEMS FROM THE EDUCATOR'S VIEWPOINT.
TURNER, FRANCIS A.
REVIEWED ARE THE EFFORTS OF THE NEW YORK CITY BOARD OF EDUCATION FOR ACHIEVING EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY. NEW SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION IN MINORITY GROUP AREAS, ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL AND CLASSES, AND NEW ZONING CRITERIA ARE NOTED. THE MOST EFFECTIVE NEW APPROACHES, BOTH AN OUTGROWTH OF THE LARGE INCREASE IN THE NEGRO AND PUERTO RICAN COMPOSITION OF THE SCHOOL POPULATION, HAVE BEEN THE IMPROVED UTILIZATION OF SCHOOL FACILITIES AND THE OPEN ENROLLMENT POLICY. DESCRIBED IS THE PERMISSIVE VOLUNTARY POLICY OF OPEN ENROLLMENT WHICH INVOLVED DESIGNATING CERTAIN SCHOOLS AS "SENDING" SCHOOLS (85-90 PERCENT OR MORE WITH NEGRO AND/OR PUERTO RICAN POPULATIONS) AND "RECEIVING" SCHOOLS (UNDER-UTILIZED AND MORE EQUITABLY BALANCED). HOWEVER, IT IS FELT THAT HOUSING PATTERNS DETERMINE AREAS OF MINORITY GROUP DENSITY. IT IS THUS STILL ESSENTIAL TO REPLACE DECAYED SCHOOLS EVEN IF DE FACTO SEGREGATION IS PERPETUATED. THESE SCHOOLS CAN ALSO PROVIDE RECREATIONAL AND ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE INVITATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NORTHERN SCHOOL DESEGREGATION--PROGRESS AND PROBLEMS, P.31-45. (NH)
