Reorganizing the Harrisburg Public Schools; A Plan for Quality Desegregated Education.
Fogel, Barbara R., Ed.
This is the report of a five-year plan to reorganize the Harrisburg public schools, designed to achieve the goals of educational excellence, racial balance, equity, stability, and economy if properly implemented. For example, the plan includes special centers from pre-kindergarten through second grade, and an educational plaza for grades 6 through 8, involving team teaching and flexible scheduling. High schools would be comprehensive, yet provide more specialized facilities and services for individual students. Staff and students would be equalized and all groups would be transported to schools equally. Interim steps for school personnel and parents are also spelled out in the report. (Author/DM)
