PROJECT CONCERN, HARTFORD'S EXPERIMENTAL BUSING PROGRAM.
SHAW, PEG
THIS REPRINTED SERIES OF NEWSPAPER ARTICLES ABOUT PROJECT CONCERN, HARTFORD'S EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM WHICH BUSES INNER CITY CHILDREN TO SUBURBAN SCHOOLS, IS COMPOSED PRIMARILY OF ANECDOTAL REPORTS FROM MOTHERS, CHILDREN, AND TEACHERS. THE INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES DEAL WITH THE CHILDREN'S REACTIONS TO THE BUSING AND TO THEIR NEW SCHOOLS, THEIR ADJUSTMENT, THE EFFECT OF THE NEWCOMERS ON THE SUBURBAN SCHOOLS, AND THE EXTENT OF THEIR ACCEPTANCE IN THESE SCHOOLS. THE FINAL ARTICLE DISCUSSES SOME OF THE PROCEDURES WHICH WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE THE PROJECT. IT ALSO CONTAINS AN INTERVIEW WITH THE PROJECT DIRECTOR WHO STATES THAT HARTFORD'S NORTH END ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS SHOULD BE CLOSED AND NEGRO AND PUERTO RICAN CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL BUSED TO SUBURBAN SCHOOLS ON THE CITY'S PERIMETER. HE FEELS THAT THE INNER CITY SCHOOLS ARE "DOOMED" AND "UNSALVAGABLE." HE ALSO NOTES THAT THERE HAVE BEEN NO RACIAL INCIDENTS DURING THE ACTIVITIES OF PROJECT CONCERN AND THAT THE PROJECT IS SPONSORING LEGISLATION WHICH WOULD LEGALIZE THE BUSING AND PLACE THE PROJECT AND ITS FINANCING UNDER STATE RESPONSIBILITY. THIS SERIES OF ARTICLES IS REPRINTED FROM THE "HARTFORD COURANT," FEBRUARY 12-17, 1967. (NH)
