Report of the New York State Commission on the Quality, Cost and Financing of Elementary and Secondary Education.
New York State Commission on the Quality, Cost, and Financing of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The Commission was appointed late in 1969 by joint action of Governor Rockefeller and the Board of Regents of the State of New York to report on the quality, cost and financing of elementary and secondary education in New York State, and to make recommendations for the improvement of performance in all of these dimensions. In addition, the Commission has examined the governance and organization of elementary and secondary education; the financing of education as it affects equality of educational opportunity; racial segregation; aid to parochial schools; and special obligations of the State with respect to certain handicapped children. Proposals have been made for changes in New York's educational system which would be essential if the State is to meet judicial standards which the Commission believes to be sound in principal and constitutionally valid. Appropriate to the five broad categories of problems, recommendations have been made for far-reaching legislative change and appropriate administrative measures. At the end of each chapter are printed separate statements by one or more Commissioners, as well as appendices which contain numerous charts and graphs. (Author/SB)
