Great Cities Research Council Educational Communications Project. Final Report. Appendices: Exhibit A, Data Processing in the Great Cities, March 1967; Exhibit C, Creativity in Urban Education; Exhibit D, the Central Cities Conference.
Great Cities Program for School Improvement, Chicago, IL.
Surveys of the data processing systems and the innovations in instruction and resource materials in 16 school districts in the cities of Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles, Memphis, Milwaukee, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C., are detailed in this report. The primary use of data processing in these districts is payroll processing. The study lists and evaluates the cost and present applications of data processing. It recommends a pilot program to promote personnel data systems, pupil data systems, program budgeting with textbook control as a major sub-system, and kindergarten to twelfth grade curriculum development for computer assisted learning. "Creativity in Urban Education" inventories over nine hundred kindergarten-through-adult-education, locally-developed materials, programs, and projects, describing level, audience, medium, place of development, and availability. The study's concluding conference provided seminar discussion of "The Community Role in Identifying Needs and Planning Programs" and seminar discussion with consultants of early childhood education, changing practices in instruction and their acceptance by parents and teachers, pre-service and in-service training, language development, and vocational education.
