This address asserts that the profession of school administrator cannot reach full maturity unless it recognizes, one and for all, that separate schools are as unsound educationally as they are legally and morally; unless it decreases the deliberation and increases the speed which it brings leadership to America's major unresolved social, educational, and human problems; unless it develops the statesmanship to fashion remedies across arbitrary lines and design programs that capitalize on human diversity; and unless it commits itself to personal action by which it and other individuals can measure the changes necessary for a just and loving school and society. Twenty-one recommendations for action are made here, including such proposals as the following: "Resolve to understand personally, and to involve all your fellow administrators in understanding, the black experience in America;""take a look at your schools through the eyes of a good pluralistic assessment tool;""contact the federally supported General Assistance Center or Human Relations Institute and ask for help in planning and presenting human relations training, as well as for some of the activities and materials enumerated here, for your staff;" and "see how many more teachers you would need to make the staff composition characteristic of the student composition in your district."
