New York City Commission on Human Rights, NY.
This report first presents a narrative and analysis of the process and aftermath of the integration of Madison High School in Brooklyn, New York City. Then 13 recommendations are stated, among which are the following: (1) Board of Education should establish a special unit to provide technical assistance for integrated schools; (2) the New York City Commission on Human Rights should provide consultation and guidance to the Board of Education and to schools requiring assistance in establishing better race relations; (3) faculty workshops should be developed; (4) an affirmative effort should be made to involve minority students in extra-curricular activities and maximize interaction between minorities and whites in such activities; (5) the Student Coordinator in the high school should be used more extensively and effectively; (6) all faculty and administrative personnel assigned to posts requiring close contact with students or supervision of extra-curricular activities should be screened for sensitivity to the needs of different ethnic groups and given special and regularized assistance in the human relations aspect of their duties; and (7) a regularized, official grievance method should be established for all segments of the student body.
