Education in Crisis: A Report on Decentralization, Teacher Training and Curriculum in the New York City Public Schools.
New York City Commission on Human Rights, NY.
This document contains testimony presented at the public hearings of the New York City Commission on Human Rights. The hearings of this commission focused on two problem areas--decentralization and teacher training, and curriculum. The burning issues of anti-Semitism and black or white racism in the schools were concerns of a special investigatory committee appointed by the mayor and are only occasionally mentioned in these hearings. Witnesses included professors from schools of education, labor union officials, teachers from various areas in the city, representatives of community, civil rights, and religious organizations, and some private citizens.
