Non-Urban School Boards and the Problem of Urban Education.
Allen, James E., Jr.
An effective attack on the massive problems of urban education in New York will require maximum cooperation among all school board members, regardless of their location in the State. As agents of the State, all school board members are legally responsible to all citizens of the State. As citizens, board members should be aware that population patterns point to an increasingly crowded and complex future. Cities will be either centers of culture and hope or places of conflict and despair, depending on the contemporary response to urban problems. In this increasingly interdependent society, all board members must share in the responsibility for obtaining "equality of educational opportunity" for children attending urban schools. (JH)
