A School Outside of School.
Goben, Ronald D.
Southern Education Report, v3 n3 Oct 1967
At a day school in East Palo Alto, California, Negro preschool children attend classes which offer reading and mathematics instruction. The staff consists of volunteer teachers, most of whom are white and credentialed. The school's enrollment exceeds 200 pupils. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program, and when controversy over support of the school arose in the school district, the school continued to gain community support. In the summer of 1967, the Office of Economic Opportunity allocated $49,000, and 120 local teenagers were hired to work with the children. These teenagers themselves attended classes in English and mathematics. By June 1968 enrollment of 500 is expected. In addition, tentative plans are underway for a private school in the East Palo Alto-East Menlo Park ghetto area. (LB)
