Community Involvement in School Desegregation: the Story of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School/Providence, Rhode Island. A Report.
Boardman, Richard P.
This report describes the successful planning, development, and operation of a desegregated public elementary school in Providence, Rhode Island. Planning involved school system personnel and all segments of an ethnically mixed community. Physical structure and operation of the school were determined in response to educational needs and desires expressed by the community. This school has provided a model for other public schools in the area, which have adopted elements of the program and procedures of the school. (Author/DM)
