Building Coalitions for Educational Priorities.
Educational Priorities Panel, New York, NY.
This paper analyzes community involvement in education and specifically discusses the activities of the Educational Priorities Panel of New York City. In the monograph's first chapter, citizen involvement in schools is studied in both an historical and contemporary context. The second chapter details New York City's fiscal crisis and the educational dilemma that followed, and the emergence of the Educational Priorities Panel pursued its goal of monitoring the school board's budget and insuring that educational monies were devoted to instructional services, not administration. Also described are the panel's internal organization and operating procedure. Chapter three outlines the panel's activities and techniques, covering its research methodologies outreach efforts, and monitoring programs. The last chapter reviews the progress of a similiar coalition in Philadelphia, the Council on Educational Priorities. The report concludes by urging the development of such local coalitions in other cities. (APM)
