An Analytical Review of a School-Community Commission.
Clark, W. W., Jr.
This paper examines the functioning of the Public School Safety Commission that was established in a large west coast city to study the problem of violence in the city's public schools. The commission was established by the board of education in the spring of 1974 and issued its final report in July 1974. Over 60 community organizations, represented by more than 110 individuals, participated in early meetings of the commission, although the number of participating organizations and individuals declined as time went on. The analysis and discussion is organized into three sections. The first section analyzes the participating organizations and representatives on the commission and discusses the relative degree of community involvement versus administrative control of the commission. The second section examines the commission's recommendations and reports the final votes on each recommendation. The final section reports the author's observations of political manipulation and control of the commission by the school administration and describes how the business of the commission was actually conducted and directed.
