ORGANIZING FOR REFORM IN BIG-CITY SCHOOLS.
LEVINE, DANIEL U.
PROPOSED IS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW DEPARTMENT IN LARGE URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IDENTIFYING AND CORRECTING DYSFUNCTIONS IN THE SCHOOLS. ONE UNIT OF SUCH A DEPARTMENT WOULD BE AUTHORIZED TO CONDUCT INSPECTIONS WHICH COULD REVEAL CONDITIONS AND SITUATIONS CONTRIBUTING TO THE POOR FUNCTIONING OF URBAN SCHOOLS. THIS UNIT COULD ALSO INITIATE CORRECTIVE ACTION. ANOTHER DEPARTMENTAL DIVISION SERVING AS AN OMBUDSMAN WOULD INVESTIGATE CITIZEN AND SCHOOL STAFF GRIEVANCES. IT IS FELT THAT THIS PROPOSED STRUCTURAL CHANGE MIGHT HELP "REALIGN AND REVITALIZE A POORLY FUNCTIONING BUREAUCRACY." THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "PHI DELTA KAPPAN," VOLUME 48, NUMBER 7, MARCH 1967. (NH)
