Metro Ways to Understanding: Volume I: A Plan for the Voluntary Elimination of Racial and Ethnic Isolation in the Schools of the Boston Metropolitan Area.
Metropolitan Planning Project, Newton, MA.
This document contains a phased Ten Year Plan aimed at promoting voluntary collaboration between urban and suburban Boston area school districts and includes the involvement of students, parents, teachers, school principles, superintendents, community organizations, and others concerned with education. It is a plan containing policy and program recommendations, as well as a participatory planning process which will lead to future development of these recommendations. Extensive data on the educational, demographic, housing, fiscal, socioeconomic, land use, and ethnic and racial characteristics of 78 towns and cities close to Boston, are presented as a needs analysis and resource inventory for utilization in the development of recommended educational programs. In addition, the feasibility of such a plan is examined and an alternative plan for meeting the stated goals is presented. The alternative plan describes the metropolitan education program recommendations, the administrative recommendations, and the governance recommendations. (EB)
