Herzog, John D.; Finn, Chester E., Jr.
This paper is the final report of the Mission Hill-Parker Hill conference on their schools, health care, and community. The background, procedures and assumptions of this study are presented. The schools in Mission Hill-Parker Hill are discussed, including sites for new schools, middle schools, community participation, and cooperation among city agencies. The vocational-technical education for careers in the health field is explored and recommendations are given. Health care in the Mission Hill-Parker Hill is likewise explored and recommendations are made. Citizen participation in planning and operating programs is discussed with alternatives and suggestions. A partial list of persons consulted and maps are included. The list of recommendations in this study include: (1) specific boundary problems will lead to imbalance in the schools, (2) a health manpower training program is needed to meet the needs of nearby Boston, and (3) the hospitals and universities agree that they should provide better, more comprehensive health care for the community.
