THIS IS PROJECT CONCERN.
Hartford City Board of Education, CT.
THE BACKGROUND AND PRESENT STATUS OF PROJECT CONCERN, A 2-YEAR DESEGREGATION PROJECT IN HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT, ARE DESCRIBED IN THIS REPORT. ABOUT 260 MINORITY GROUP PUPILS FROM EIGHT INNER-CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ARE BEING BUSED TO SCHOOLS IN FIVE OUTLYING SUBURBAN AREAS. STATE AND LOCAL TAX MONIES, PRIVATE FOUNDATION FUNDS, AND A FEDERAL GRANT UNDER TITLE I OF THE 1965 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT ALL CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUPPORT OF THIS PROJECT. THE NECESSITY FOR SUCH EFFORTS IS DOCUMENTED BY DATA WHICH INDICATES THAT MORE THAN 52 PERCENT OF THE CITY'S ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN ARE NONWHITE AND THAT SOME SUBURBAN TOWNS HAVE NO NEGRO PUPILS AT ALL. IN GENERAL, THE PROJECT IS BEING RECEIVED ENTHUSIASTICALLY AND IS CONSIDERED A SUCCESS. ABOUT 90 PERCENT OF HARTFORD PARENTS USUALLY ATTEND THE SUBURBAN PTA MEETINGS. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OFFICE, 249 HIGH STREET, HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT, 06103. (LB)
