Teachers' Opinion of the City Residency Requirement.
Ogletree, Earl J.
A survey of 185 teachers and administrators in Chicago indicated some differences of opinion on a ruling that teachers must reside in the city. Minorities (blacks and Latinos) and those who lived in the city favored the residency ruling. These responses could be influenced by economic and social concerns. Teachers who lived in the suburbs (majority of whom were white) were against the ruling. All groups believed the ruling to be unconstitutional, restrictive, and a violation of their civil rights.
