Little (Arthur D.), Inc., Cambridge, MA.
On behalf of the California Legislature's Joint Committee on Reorganization of Large Urban Unified School Districts, Arthur D. Little, Inc. has been working since November 1969 to produce information which the joint committee can use in proposing responsible, research based legislation in accordance with its charter. In the first volume of this report are three major sections: (1) introduction--a brief discussion of the purpose of the study and of the way it was carried out; (2) summary--an overall summary of the results of the study including major conclusions and recommendations; (3) presentation and discussion of research findings--the results of integrating all of the field work, research tasks, and discussions in a comprehensive documented report. It deals with criteria for district reorganization, the need for district reorganization, and the description and evaluation of various alternative forms of reorganization in large urban unified school districts.
