Metropolitan Planning Project, 1977-78. Final Performance Report.
Arnoff, Steven M.
This document provides a description of the Metropolitan Planning Project (MPP), its objectives, strategies, and an evaluation of its implementation in the Boston area. In order to encourage the voluntary elimination, reduction, and prevention of minority group isolation in elementary and secondary schools in Boston, the project focuses on two major objective components: (1) core administration, and (2) community participation and public information. The focus of the evaluation plan presented in this paper is on how successful the project has been in accomplishing each of its stated objectives. A summarization of the implementation aspects of the project is followed by a description of the population benefiting from assistance and the results of managment performance and other program objectives. Appended are descriptions of two related programs (Metropathways and Metro Ethnic Heritage Resource Centers), ideas for a survey of school needs, and a survey of school systems instrument.
