MCCONE COMMISSION EDUCATION RECOMMENDATIONS. PROGRESS REPORT.
MARTYN, KENNETH A.
THIS FOLLOWUP STUDY EXAMINES THE PROGRESS OF THE LOS ANGELES CITY AND COUNTY SCHOOLS IN IMPLEMENTING THE EDUCATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS IN THE REPORT OF THE MCCONE COMMISSION, THE GOVERNOR'S COMMISSION ON THE LOS ANGELES RIOTS. IT PRESENTS DATA, SUPPLIED BY THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, ON DOUBLE SESSIONS AND UNUSED CLASSROOMS, CAFETERIA AND MEALS, LIBRARIES, COUNSELING, THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED, AND PERSONAL SECURITY. ALSO PRESENTED ARE FINDINGS ON PRESCHOOLS, TEACHER RECRUITMENT, CLASS SIZE, DE FACTO SEGREGATION, ACHIEVEMENT TEST DATA, AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROBLEMS. IT IS NOTED THAT WHILE "SOME PROGRESS" HAS BEEN MADE IN CARRYING OUT THE COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATIONS, THE MASSIVE INCREASE IN FUNDS NEEDED TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION IN DISADVANTAGED SCHOOLS HAS NOT BEEN FORTHCOMING. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATIONS MIGHT BE MORE EFFECTIVELY FOLLOWED AND TESTED IN LOS ANGELES BY CONCENTRATING AVAILABLE FUNDS IN A SELECTED NUMBER OF SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS. THIS WOULD ALLOW THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE NECESSARY MAJOR IMPROVEMENT IN PUPIL ACHIEVEMENT. (NH)
