METROPOLITAN SHARING, A SURVEY OF PRESENT PRACTICES AND ATTITUDES IN THE SCHOOLS OF THE NIAGARA FRONTIER. A REPORT FROM PROJECT INNOVATION.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Dept. of Educational Administration.
PROJECT INNOVATION SURVEYED THE RANGE OF INTERDISTRICT COOPERATION AMONG THE SCHOOLS OF THE NIAGARA FRONTIER OF NEW YORK STATE. IT WAS FOUND THAT THERE WAS EXTENSIVE SHARING OF SERVICES IN METROPOLITAN AREAS TO REDUCE COSTS, TO COMPLY WITH LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, AND TO PROVIDE QUALITY EDUCATION TO STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. INTERVIEWS WITH LOCAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS IN 34 DISTRICTS, BOARD OF EDUCATION PRESIDENTS, TEACHERS ASSOCIATION PRESIDENTS, AND OTHER SCHOOL LEADERS SHOWED THAT MOST RESPONDENTS FAVORED THE ADVANTAGES OF SHARING. THERE WAS A GENERAL RELUCTANCE, HOWEVER, TO SHARE METROPOLITAN PROGRAMS AIMED AT REDUCING ECONOMIC, RACIAL, AND SOCIAL CLASS INEQUALITIES IN EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. SCHOOL OFFICIALS APPEARED TO FAVOR THE BROADEST DEFINITION OF SHARING WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF EFFICIENCY AND ECONOMY FOR THEIR DISTRICTS. (NH)
