NEUTRALIZATION, A PLAN FOR DECENTRALIZATION.
Center for Urban Education, New York, NY.
A SATURATION COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM IN A BEDFORD-STUYVESANT (NEW YORK CITY) PUBLIC SCHOOL IS BEING ORGANIZED BY PROJECT BEACON OF YESHIVA UNIVERSITY. THE 140 PUPILS IN THE FOURTH GRADE WILL BE HETEROGENEOUSLY GROUPED AND THEN GROUPED BY TALENT IN THE AREAS OF ART, MUSIC, AND DRAMA. AN EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM, INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION, SMALLER CLASSES, INTENSIVE GUIDANCE SERVICES, AND A PARENT INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM ARE FEATURES OF THIS EXPERIMENT. THERE WILL BE EIGHT TEACHERS ASSIGNED TO THE PROJECT, SIX OF THEM IN CHARGE OF CLASSES, ONE CLUSTER TEACHER, AND ONE TEACHER SPECIALIST. COMMUNITY RESIDENTS WILL FILL TWO PARENT-SCHOOL LIAISON POSTS AND SEVERAL POSITIONS AS SCHOOL AIDES. ANOTHER FEATURE OF THE PROJECT IS A "CRASH" READING PROGRAM FOR 100 OF THE MOST DISRUPTIVE STUDENTS AND POOREST READERS IN GRADES THREE TO SIX. PROJECT BEACON WILL OFFER INSERVICE TRAINING TO THE ENTIRE SCHOOL TEACHING STAFF. A COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVE WILL SIT ON THE GOVERNING BOARD, WHICH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVALUATING THE PROJECT, AND AT A LATER TIME WORKSHOPS WILL BE DESIGNED TO PREPARE PARENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SCHOOL'S MANAGEMENT.
