An examination of city demography and enrollment trends is the basis of this report which presents a long range plan stipulating locations and capacities of new schools, and costs of proposed construction. Recommendations include a proposed plan of metropolitan cooperation in education, a system reorganization plan, a transportation plan for middle schools and high schools which will reflect city wide racial distribution, and a regional organization which will engage the schools in a cooperative attack on the problems of poverty and race in the central city. Appendices discuss the methodology employed in the demographic study, and an evaluation of buildings recommended for abandonment. (FPO)
