The Unique Problems of Urban School Administration: An Institute for School Administrators of the Buffalo Public Schools and Several Suburban School Districts.
McKelvey, Troy V.; Swanson, Austin D.
This report on an Institute for school administrators in Buffalo, New York, focuses on the problems of urban school administration. The Institute was held during the summer of 1967 at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The State University, the Buffalo Public Schools, and several suburban schools came together in order to enhance the quality and creative potential of educators, and to exchange ideas on the problems of urban schools. The Institute was planned around the perceived needs of administrators in the public school system. Consultants and lecturers delivered speeches and conducted seminars on urban education. This report includes the text of all major speeches given during the summer Institute; the topics include: the evolution of the urban community; racial isolation and its implications for the schools; discussion of proposals for change; and, recommendations in particular for Buffalo. Evaluations of the Institute are included in appendixes. Both evaluation reports indicate that the Institute met the needs of the participants; that their expectations had been fulfilled; and, that they desired to attend another institute. The overall quality of the speakers and discussion leaders was considered good. Suggestions for improving future institutes of this kind are given.
