CITY OF BOSTON 



Proceedings of School Committee 



Jan. 4, 1965 
A conference of the 
School Committee of the 
City of Boston was held in 
the Administration Build- 
ing, 15 Beacon Street, Bos- 
ton at 11:35 a. m., and ad- 
journed at 12:10 p. m. 

The meeting for organ- 
ization of the School Com- 
mittee of the City of Bos- 
ton for the current munici- 
pal year was held in the 
Administration Building, 15 
Beacon Street, at 11:15 
a. m., and adjourned at 
11:35 a m. 

Present: Messrs. Eisen- 
stadt, Gartland, Mrs. Hicks, 
Messrs. Bee and O'Connor. 

Mr. Lee . The meeting will 
come to order. 

I am presiding not be- 
cause I am the oldest mem- 
ber here but because I was 
the first to have come on 
the School Committee; or, 
to make it more official, the 
law reads: 

"The School Committee 
shall be called to order by 
the member present whose 
original election as a mem- 
ber of the School Commit- 
tee of the City of Boston 
is of the earliest date, who 
shall preside until a chair- 
man is chosen." 

Interestingly enough, that 
doesn't mean I preside for- 
ever if there is a deadlock 
because another section that 
Mr. Winter called to my 
attention speaks of hold- 
overs shall preside till 
others are chosen, and I 
presume Mr. O'Connor 
would be the holdover, so 
we can't lose this morning 
whatever we do. 

Now I think, Mr. Winter, 
the next business is the elec- 
tion of a Chairman. 

Secretary: Shall I read 
this statement? 

Under the provisions of 
Chapter 376 of the Acts of 
1951, an act amending and 
clarifying certain sections of 
the act providing three op- 
tional plans of city govern- 



ment in the City of Boston, 
the membership of the 
School Committee for the 
year 1965 is: 

Mr. Thomas S. Eisenstadt; 
Mr. Arthur J. Gartland; 
Mrs. Louise Day Hicks; Mr. 
Joseph Lee; and Mr. Wil- 
liam E. O'Connor. 

Mr. Lee: Thank you. 

Now it's always been 
somewhat of an uncertainty 
to me whether the members 
make nominations, nominat- 
ing speeches, or merely pro- 
ceed to vote The rules and 
regulations do provide that 
at the time of voting as 
the Secretary calls the roll 
each member shall name the 
person whom he votes for. 

I am not going to rule out 
nominating speeches. On 
the other hand, if no one 
wishes to conic forward with 
that form of proceeding, I 
presume we will go right 
to the business of having 
the Secretary call the roll. 

Mr. O'Connor: Mr. Chair- 
man, I would be very happy 
at this time to nominate 
Mr. Arthur Gartland for 
Chairman. I think he has 
given very splendid service 
to this Committee. He has 
given a lot or his time be- 
yond the call of actual ob- 
ligation. He has certainly 
proven himself fit both in- 
side and outside the School 
Committee, and I am de- 
lighted at the opportunity 
to present his name in 
nomination for Chairman 
for the coming school year. 

Mr. Gartland: I thank 
you. 

Mrs. Hicks. Mr. Lee, is 
it necessary to make a nom- 
inating speech in order to 
vote for a member? 

Mr. Lee: No, I don't think 
so. The nominating speeches, 
I think, merely give any 
member a chance to speak 
if he wants to, but the 
regulations are perfectly 
clear that when the Secre- 
tary calls the roll the elect- 
ing itself consists of each 
member responding with the 
name of the person for 
whom he wants to vote. 

I take it that it is now 
in order for you to call the 
roll, Mr. Winter. 

(Rollcall:) 

Mr. Eisenstadt: Eisen- 
stadt. 

Mr. Gartland: Gartland.

Mr. Lee: I need to clarify 
my mind as against the 
others. Could you at least 
summarize the last vote, 
Mr. Winter, or just read 
down the list and tell us 
how many votes? 

Secretary: Mr. Eisenstadt 
got one vote, Mr. Gartland 
got two votes, Mrs. Hicks 
one vote, and Mr. Lee one 
vote. 

Mr. Lee: Does any mem- 
ber wish to speak? Now is 
the time for nominating 
speeches — for some member 
to per sua ae another mem- 
ber to his own view. 

Well, there doesn't seem 
to be any points brought out 
in favor of one more than 
another. 

What is the pleasure of 
the committee — to try 
again? 

Mrs. Hicks: Why don't 
you cal] a recess, Mr. Lee? 

Mr. Leo: Why don't we 
try a few more times? Let's 
try it once again. Is that 
all right with the members?

guess you will take the 
chair. 

(Mrs. Hicks assumed the 
chair.) 

Chairman. I want to 
thank my colleagues for 
their vote ot confidence. I 
will certainly say that it 
was a surprise even to me. 

Next is the election of

Statement of chairman 
Louise Day Hicks : 

I am grateful to my col- 
leagues for the honor they 
conferred upon me at our 
first meeting of the year on 
January 4. To be elected 
chairman of this historic 
body is an honor in which 
I take pride and a serious 
responsibility which I so- 
berly accept. 

Today the American sys- 
tem of public education 
faces a myriad of serious 
challenges ; perhaps the most 
serious of these is the cur- 
rent spate of attacks from 
many quarters. Self-ap- 
pointed critics are insidi- 
ously undermining the entire 
educational structure which 
I remind you is this nation's 
first line of defense. Sweep- 
ing pronouncements charg- 
ing inefficiency and incom- 
petence are in daily evi- 
dence in our newspapers. A 
new phrase, "educational 
establishment," has been 
coined to further sow the 
seeds of disrespect and scorn 
for those engaged in edu- 
cating the young. It is 
fashionable and "sure fire" 



headlines today to down- 
grade professional educators. 
The very latest fad is to 
recommend removing them 
— every last one of them — 
from State Boards of Edu- 
cation — on the reasoning 
that doctors and lawyers, 
and journalists and engin- 
eers, know much more about 
running education than do 
the educators!! 

Without claiming to be an 
authority on education in 
these United States, it seems 
obvious to me that the cur- 
rent attacks are largely un- 
warranted. Our wonderful 
United States of America is 
a great and powerful nation. 
It has achieved this great- 
ness in a relatively short 
period of time. One does not 
have to be an authority on 
education to realize that 
America is great today be- 
cause her democratic sys- 
tem of public education has 
been the most succesful and 
fruitful system of educa- 
tion in the history of the 
world. 

I, for one, have the most 
profound respect for the 
public schools of America 
and for the professional ed- 
ucators, the members of the 
"establishment" past and 
present, who planned, di- 
rected, and expanded the 
school systems of America. 
This is not to say that fault 
cannot be found. It can and 
it should — but with honesty 
and a genuine desire for 
improvement and in recog- 
nition of the historical de- 
velopment and success of 
the system. 

The schools today face 
serious challenges — chal- 
lenges that will require the 
dedication and creative plan- 
ning of all of us who are 
charged with the responsi- 
bility for the quality of ed- 
ucation. We must find a way 
to "climb every mountain" 
to open wide the doors of 
education to every boy and 
girl. 

Here in Boston we also 
face challenges. The urgent 
and continuing demand to 
meet the needs created by 
the impact of scientific dis- 
covery and invention, the 
accelerated rate of tech- 
nological changes and au- 
tomation, are but a few. 



10 



JANUARY 18, 1965 



These needs we have been 
meeting and will continue 
to meet through a regular 
review of our program of 
education, new and im- 
proved teaching and learn- 
ing practices and materials, 
improvements in adminis- 
tration and organization, 
and through flexibility and 
adaptability in the design of 
school buildings in relation 
to their services to the pro- 
grams of American educa- 
tion. I have every confidence 
that any challenges square- 
ly met can be resolved. 

As chairman of this school 
committee, I shall pay par- 
ticular attention this year 
to certain critical phases of 
our educational program. I 
have set as goals the follow- 
ing projects to be embarked 
upon, if not fully achieved, 
within my tenure of office: 
1. NEW SCHOOL 
CONSTRUCTION 

No phase of Boston edu- 
cation needs greater em- 
phasis than the rapid mod- 
ernization of our deterio- 
rating and inadequate phy- 
sical plant. We desperately 
need new schools! The 
"New Boston" which we 
hear so much about be- 
comes a meaningless slo- 
gan without the new 
schools this city needs and 
our boys and girls deserve. 
I call upon all public offi- 
cials and those agencies 
concerned with school con- 
struction to embark upon 
an immediate full scale, 
crash program to build 
schools for Boston. 

The Los Angeles public 
school system opens a 
brand new school every 
week to house their grow- 
ing pupil population. An 
accomplishment such as 
this takes imagination, 
skill, know-how and most 
of all, determination. 

Why must our building 
program drag along at a 
snail's pace when such an 
urgency most obviously ex- 
ists? I do not know the 
answer to the total failui^e 
of our program, but I have 
discovered part of the 
answer. From the time 
the school committee appro- 
priates money to acquire 
land and provide plans for 
a new school, 64, I repeat 



64, steps must be taken by 
the school buildings mom- 
mission and the school, com- 
mittee before actual con- 
struction can begin! Such 
an unbelievably complex 
and slow-moving set of 
procedures is scandalous in 
this time of urgent need! 
A new system of efficient 
procedures is obviously 
needed to streamline our 
building program. 

I recommend that we im- 
mediately employ the serv- 
ices of the Harvard Uni- 
versity graduate center for 
field studies to study the 
entire school building pro- 
cedural system with a 
view to drastic overhaul. I 
shall place this recom- 
mendation on the agenda 
for the consideration of my 
colleagues and strongly 
urge their speedy adoption. 

As proof of the total in- 
adequacy of our present 
system of school construc- 
tion I point out to you that 
as of this moment, in our 
hour of desperate need, 
there is not one — NOT 
ONE new school under con- 
struction in this city!! This 
is in spite of the fact that 
$29,000,000 in bond issues 
have been available to us 
for more than a year. 

Can any responsible pub- 
lic official question the need 
for a thorough investigation 
of the construction proce- 
dures of this city? Can any- 
one question the need for 
a new English High School 
which has been more than 
five years in the talking 
stage? Can anyone question 
the need for numerous new 
elementary schools in vari- 
ous sections of our city to 
relieve the shocking over- 
crowding of pupils? Can 
anyone question the need 
for a new vocational school 
to replace the outmoded 
and inefficient Trade High 
School? Can anyone doubt 
the need for a new school 
of business education to 
prepare our young men and 
women for the world of 
business? 

I recommend that we 
make plans forthwith to 
construct a new desperately 
needed administration build- 
ing. The present adminis- 
trative quarters, here at 15 



JANUARY 18, 1965 



11 



Beacon Street and at 45 
Myrtle Street, are obsolete 
and inadequate. I am con- 
vinced that the lack of 
space seriously curtails the 
efficient administration of 
our complex school struc- 
ture. We are trying to 
operate a $45,000,000 busi- 
ness from a "hen-coop 
headquarters." It just can- 
not be done and done well. 
I urge that the acres of land 
available in the West End 
area at the bottom of this 
hill, on the periphery of 
the new Government Cen- 
ter be used for a new build- 
ing. 

In conjunction with the 
new administration building 
which I propose to be built 
in the West End, I recom- 
mend the construction of a 
new Boston School of Busi- 
ness Education to be built 
adjacent to the administra- 
tion building. This special- 
ized school, which is basical- 
ly a junior college, admit- 
ting only high school grad- 
uates, does a magnificent job 
of training bright young 
men and young women for 
the business world. It is 
such a successful school that 
all of its graduates receive 
high salaried positions — not, 
however, in the school de- 
partment. None of the grad- 
uates of this excellent school 
come to work for the school 
department which is in des- 
perate need of trained sec- 
retarial help. 

The location of the School 
of Business Education next 
to the new administration 
building would guarantee 
the undergraduate students 
training offices in which to 
apply the classroom theories 
and concomitantly reinforce 
the understaffed clerical 
force in the administrative 
offices. It is ludicrous to 
train such efficient, highly 
skilled, secretarial personnel 
at considerable expense only 
to lose every graduate to 
private business firms. 

The West End location, 
easily reached by automo- 
bile or public transportation 
adjacent to the center of 
city and state government 
and convenient to the Bos- 
ton business firms which 
employ our business school 



students, is a highly desir- 
able location for the two 
aforementioned structures. 
I shall urge my colleagues 
at a subsequent meeting to 
adopt these proposals. 

2. Concurrent with our 
need for new schools is our 
need for adequate land on 
which to build. It is obvious 
that our requirements in 
this direction will be con- 
siderable for many years to 
come. Therefore, I urge a 
systematic method of "stock 
piling sites" to use as needed. 
A "land bank" would guar- 
antee this committee and 
future school committees, 
with good school sites in 
widespread locations around 
the city on which to build. 

3. I hope to see the pupil 
guidance services expanded 
during this year. We must 
employ guidance counsellors 
in the elementary schools to 
assist our boys and girls 
make the proper choice of 
courses, consistent with 
their abilities, for the junior 
and senior high schools. 

4. The establishment of 
a new department the func- 
tion of which would be to 
study and evaluate all fed- 
eral, state, and private grant 
and scholarship programs 
and the preparation of pro- 
posals to ensure the eligi- 
bility of the Boston schools 
for such financial assistance. 
We cannot neglect to take 
advantage of all programs 
which will lessen the finan- 
cial burden on the Boston 
taxpayer while expanding 
the scope of our education- 
al services. 

5. I view this year as a 
"must" year for a signifi- 
cant step forward in our 
salary schedule for teachers. 
Last year the teachers re- 
ceived no increase. I shall 
soon propose a schedule of 
salary payments which will 
keep Boston competitive 
with those surrounding com- 
munities with whom we vie 
for teachers. 

6. In order to insure the 
greatest possible chance of 
employment for many spe- 
cial class pupils, I would 
favor intensive emphasis 
upon employment prepara- 
tion with an expansion and 
intensification of the work

now being done at the David 
L. Barrett center in Brigh- 
ton. There should be for 
both special class boys and 
girls a curriculum which 
would give definitive job 
preparation through the de- 
velopment of a chain of 
saleable skills. It is of the 
utmost importance that we 
utilize federal funds from 
the poverty bill to prepare 
our special class boys and 
girls of nearly normal abil- 
ity to become self-support- 
ing, self-respecting citizens 
who have the skills neces- 
sary for permanent employ- 
ment. 

I am confident that as 
chairman of the Boston 
School Committee for the 
year 1965, I shall have the 
support and cooperation of 
my colleagues, of the per- 
sonnel of the Boston public 
schools, and of all the citi- 
zens of Boston. I am sure 
that we shall work together 
in the enthusiastic spirit of 
those early architects of 
American education whose 
foresight and dedication 
made our public schools, our 
American nation, and our 
city of Boston great. 

In the tradition, of our 
forefathers the Boston pub- 
lic schools will eagerly move 
forward to meet the chal- 
lenges of the future. 

Thank You.

FINANCE COMMISSION 

REPORT ON BAG LUNCH 

PROGRAM 

The following report of 
the Finance Commission on 
the bag lunch program, 
dated Feb. 15, 1965, was 
ordered spread upon the 
public record: 

The Finance Commission 
wishes to commend the 
School Department for its 
successful efforts at insti- 
tuting a bag lunch program 
in the City's elementary 
schools. 

In August, 1964, the Com- 
mission noted that although 
the City's elementary 
schools were not equipped 
with cafeterias, school lunch 
programs could still be initi- 
ated for their pupils. We 
pointed out that it would 
be possible to prepare bag 
lunches in high school cafe- 
terias over night and ship 
these out to elementary 
schools the following morn- 
ing. The Commission cited 
several other communities 
such as Maiden, Massachu- 
setts and Washington, D. C. 
where such bag lunch pro- 
grams had been successfully 
carried out. 

In September, 1964, the 
School Department started 
a pilot bag lunch program 
at the Lewis Junior High 
School in Roxbury. This 
school, which also contains 
some elementary pupils 



from the Julia Ward Howe 
School, is in one of the 
City's poorer districts. 
There is a small kitchen in 
the school which helps with 
the preparation of the 
lunches but most of the 
cooking is done at the Bos- 
ton Trade School or at the 
Solomon Lewenberg Junior 
High School. 

As a result of this proj- 
ect, an average of 200 to 220 
pupils out of 500 are pro- 
vided daily with a nutri- 
tious, well - balanced bag 
lunch. The preparation and 
serving of the bag lunches 
and the collection of monies 
is done by one full-time 
and one part-Urne attend- 
ant. 

Having achieved success 
with this pilot project, the 
Department, on January 8, 
1965, expanded the program 
to the David A. Ellis Ele- 
mentary School, the David 
A. Ellis Annex (Godvin 
School) and the Henr-' L. 
Higginson School. These 
three schools have an en- 
rollment of approximately 
980 pupils. At present, more 
than half of these young- 
sters are taking daily ad- 
vantage of these bag 
lunches. 

These lunches are pre- 
pared at Dorchester High 
School, the serving and 
record-keeping for the pro- 
gram in the three schools is 
done by one permanent at- 
tendant and two temporary 
attendants. 

Pick-up and delivery of 
the food prepared at the 
two high schools and one 
junior high school is done 
by a private contractor in 
a station wagon. He is paid 
$4.48 per hour which covers 
all expenses. He works 3 
hours a day, five days a 
week. 

The main stay of the pro- 
gram is surplus commodities 
from Federal sources. These 
include turkeys, hamburg, 
canned goods, peanut 
butter, etc. The Common- 
wealth's Luncheon Assist- 
ance Program has allotted a 
subsidy of 15 cents per 
lunch for the program in 
depressed economic areas. 
The new poverty legislation 
enacted by Congress may 
increase the Federal aids 
already provided. 



34 



MARCH 3, 1965 



The program, of course, 
has not been without prob- 
lems. According to the pro- 
gram's director, Mrs. Pris- 
cilla M. Richard, in the 
schools being served, stor- 
age space for canned goods, 
paper dishes and bags, etc. 
is limited and refrigerator 
space is almost non-existent. 
The School Department 
may well wish to incorpo- 
rate in some of the new 
schools now being planned 
centralized facilities for 
cooking, preparation and 
storage of bag lunches to be 
served at other elementary 
schools in the same area. 

In concluding, it may be 
well to recapitulate the two 
primary benefits of this pro- 
gram. The first, bf course, 
is better nutrition for the 
children being served. It is 
a proven fact that children 
from economically disad- 
vantaged homes — and many 
from non - disadvantaged 
homes — are frequently mal- 
nourished. The school lunch 
program can go far to alle- 
viate this. At the same time, 
the program educates these 
youngsters in proper nutri- 
tional and eating habits, 
giving them eating experi- 
ence with all kinds _ of 
nourishing foods which 
otherwise they would grow 
up without ever having 
tasted. 

The School Department's 
success with the bag lunch 
program is a source of great 
satisfaction to the Finance 
Commission as it must be 
to you and the members of 
your Department.

PRELIMINARY 
ESTIMATES 

The following communi- 
cation was presented: 

CITY OF BOSTON 

OFFICE OF THE MAYOR 

CITY HALL 

March 29, 1965 
The School Committee 
City of Boston 
15 Beacon Street 
Boston, Massachusetts 
Gentlemen: 

The preliminary 1965 es- 
timates submitted to me on 
February 1, 1965 by the 
City of Boston School Com- 
mittee totalled $50,635,802. 
These estimates for 1965 
are higher than the 1964 
appropriation by an amount 
of $6,200,825. 

It is my most earnest de- 
sire, as Mayor of the City 
of Boston, to advance and 
improve Boston's public 
schools. In recent years, I 
have worked hard to stimu- 
late the buiiding of new 
schools where they are 
needed, to provide funds 
sufficient to enable us to 



compete for qualified teach- 
ers, and to make our educa- 
tional programs meet the 
challenges of c h a n gi n g 
times. I have not always 
been satisfied with our 
progress, just as you have 
not always been satisfied. 
I, just as you, have often 
discussed, debated and won- 
dered about those things 
which seem to limit Bos- 
ton's resources, financial 
and otherwise, as to make 
it impossible to proceed as 
rapidly as would wish to 
improve our City's schools. 

The time for debate and 
discussion of Boston's finan- 
cial problems, and indeed the 
financial problems of every 
city and town in Massachu- 
setts, is at an end. It ends 
now — in 1965. The time is 
past when Boston, or any 
other municipality in Massa- 
chusetts, can look within its 
own purse, can look to its 
own property taxes, for a 
solution to the demands be- 
ing made upon us for more 
dollars for education, more 
dollars for assistance to the 
needy, more dollars for the 
protection of persons and 
property, more dollars for 
efforts to make our cities 
enjoyable and healthful 
places to live and work. The 
purse is not big enough for 
so many requirements, and, 
it is almost empty. 

I said that the time for 
debate has ended. This is the 
time for action — and I am 
devoting all my energy, my 
time and efforts to action 
now, in 1965. I cannot ask 
you, as members of the 
School Committee, to do 
any less. As you may know, 
if you have attended public 
gatherings or legislative 
hearings or listened to the 
radio or watched television, 
I have done everything pos- 
sible to persuade our citi- 
zens and our law makers 
that those provisions of the 
Willis Report which would 
improve Boston's public 
schools ought to be enacted 
into law. 

But I have not heard or 
seen you striving for a pub- 
lic consensus on a plan to 
translate the Willis Report 
into action. 

And again, if you have at- 
tended public gatherings or 
listened to the radio or 



80 



MARCH 30, 1965 



watched television, you may 
know that I have used every 
persuasion within my pow- 
er to convince the people 
and their lawmakers of the 
need for more state aid to 
education, of the need for a 
sales tax or other new rev- 
enues to put into effect 
plans for improving our 
public schools. 

But I have not heard or 
seen you striving for the 
enactment of new tax rev- 
enues which would make 
possible so much more im- 
provement in Boston's pub- 
lic schools. 

It is my strongest and 
most sincere belief that all 
of us have the responsibility 
and, indeed, the obligation 
to do everything within our 
power to provide better ed- 
ucation for our children. It 
is my equally strong convic- 
tion that some of us are not 
fulfilling our obligation at 
the present time. I urge you 
you to join with me NOW in 
turning your every effort 
to the opportunity which 
presents itself this year to 
help solve our fiscal prob- 
lems. I urge every member 
of the School Committee 
and every member of the 
teaching faculties and every 
parent of school children to 
join in the attack on the 
most serious fiscal crisis 
that has ever confronted 
our cities and towns. Until 
this crisis is solved, we must 
live within our severely 
limited means. 

I have accepted the 
recommendations of the Su- 
pervisor of Budgets, Mr. 
Henry T. Brennan, which 
recommendations reduce 
your preliminary estimates 
to $46,729,688. In arriving 
at this decision, I have taken 
into account that school ap- 
propriations which were 
$33,856,807 in 1960 will 
have risen in 1965 by $12,- 
872.000 or greater than 
36% in the five year period. 

The amount alloted for 
General School Purposes is 
$2,279,411 more than for the 
same appropriation in 1964, 
or a total of $44,795,688 for 
General School Purposes. 
These recommendations also 
allow $134,000 for Land 
and Buildings (in addition 
to funds already provided 



for this purpose), and $1,- 
800,000 for Alterations and 
Repairs (also in addition to 
funds otherwise provided). 

It is, of course, the re- 
sponsibility of the School 
Committee to determine 
how the increased funds 
shall be distributed, and I 
have no desire to interfere 
with such determination. 

Respectfully, John F. 
Collins, Mayor. 

Placed on file.

Mr. Eisenstadt: I'd like to 
have it noted for the record 
that in conference I had 
moved to amend this figure 
upwards and it was de- 
feated. 

Mr. Lee: I think we ought 
to take the full vote again 
with Mr. Gartland's motion 
for $1,800,000. It is a very 
important matter. 

Mr. Gartland: I will move 
to amend to $1,800,000.

ment, $1,800,000. (Rollcall:)

Mr. Lee: May I say you 
can get $200,000 more if you 
merely approximate the sum 
and vote with Mr. Eisen- 
stadt and me. It's no time to 
throw out $200,000 that you 
believe in and that I believe 
in and Mr. Eisenstadt be- 
lieves in. I do hope you will 
join us. 

Mr. Gartland: I can't do 
that. I won't do it, Mr. Lee. 

Secretary: $1,000,000.

Mr. Eisenstadt: We have

Yes. 

Mr. Gartland: Present. 

Mr. Lee: Yes. 

Mr. O'Connor: Yes. 

Chairman: Yes. 

Mr. Gartland- I would 
like it noted for the record, 



Madam Chairman and 
Members, that the reason 
for my voting present is 
that I feel that so much 
harm is done by the reduc- 
tion of this amount below 
$1,800,000 that I cannot 
contribute my vote to any 
lesser amount. 

Mr. Lee: Madam Chair- 
man, I also wish to make it 
known that by Mr. Gart- 
land's voting "present" and 
failing to vote Yes on the 
$1,500,000, and specifically 
on the $1,000,000, he has lost 
$200,000 desperately needed 
by our children out of the 
$1,800,000 he himself wished 
to get. 

Mr. Gartland: Madam 
Chairman, this is not a 
wholly justifiable remark 
because whereas I think 
that the School Committee 
forecloses itself from voting 
for a higher amount there is 
no reason to expect that the 
account cannot — and in my 
opinion will be — augmented 
by the Mayor to the amount 
which he had stated to us in 
his letter he was willing to 
see us appropriate to these 
uses. 

Mr. O'Connor: And, Mad- 
am Chairman, for the record 
I would say with my great 
love for the school children 
and the deep interest I have 
in the well-being of our 
teachers — that they have an 
adequate salary raise to 
maintain their livelihood — I 
am voting for the lower 
amount and transferring the 
balance into their salary 
schedule. 

(Applause) 

Mr. Eisenstadt: Madam 
Chairman, in order to save 
time I wish merely to sec- 
ond the sentiments of Mr. 
O'Connor. This saves a lot 
of money and a lengthy rec- 
ord. 

Chairman : I expressed my 
sentiments by my vote. 

Mr. Lee: Mr. O'Connor 
hasn't transferred anything 
to the teachers' account. 
Only the Mayor can do that.

Honorable John F. Collins

City Hall 

Boston, Massachusetts 
Dear Sir: 

Enclosed are orders 
passed by the School Com- 
mittee at the meeting of 



April 3, 1965 making appro- 
priations for Alterations 
and Repairs, Land and 
Buildings, and General 
School Purposes. 

The total amount needed 
for 1965 for General School 
Purposes is $45,848,006.00. 
Because the total amount 
needed for 1965 for General 
School Purposes ($45,848,- 
006.00) exceeds the amount 
available for appropriation 
by the School Committee 
($40,599,551.64), the School 
Committee respectfully re- 
quests your Honor to rec- 
ommend to the City Council 
to appropriate the addi- 
tional amount needed for 
General School Purposes in 
the sum of $5,248,454.36. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed)

LETTER FROM MAYOR— 
1965 BUDGET 

The following communica- 
tion was presented : 

CITY OF BOSTON 

OFFICE OF THE MAYOR 

CITY HALL 

April 9, 1965 
The School Committee 
City of Boston 
15 Beacon Street 
Boston, Massachusetts 
Gentlemen: 

I have received the re- 
quest ordered by the School 
Committee at its meeting of 
April 3, 1965 under cover 
of letter dated April 5, 1965. 

A careful review of the 
request and the action of the 
School Committee does not 
reveal justification for any 
departure from the allow- 
ances recited in my letter of 
March 29, 1965. Indeed, it 
would appear that not only 
has a majority of the School 
Committee acted illegally in 
voting salary increases at a 
time when no appropria- 
tions were available for 
such a purpose, but, in ad- 
dition, has acted in a most 
hasty and ill-considered 
manner in reducing the 
amount of funds allowed by 
me for alterations and re- 
pairs to school buildings. 

Under separate cover, you 
have received notification of 
the Corporation Counsel of 
the City of Boston that the 
salary increases voted by 
the School Committee at its 
meeting on April 3, 1965. 



are, in Counsel's opinion, of 
no force or effect. This does 
not mean, of course, that 
salary adjustments cannot 
be made. 

In fact, the Supervisor of 
Budgets of the City of Bos- 
ton informs me that money 
is available in our allowance 
for General School Purposes 
sufficient to give substantial 
increases to teachers. If the 
School Committee practices 
the economy and efficiency 
which we must practice in 
city government, and if it 
resists granting large salary 
increases to non-teaching, 
personnel, whose salaries 
are already competitive, it 
will be possible to place 
Boston teachers in a very 
advantageous salary posi- 
tion. 

For these reasons, I shall 
submit an order to the Bos- 
ton City Council for a 1965 
appropriation t o General 
School Purposes in the 
amount of $4,196,136.36. 
This amount in addition to 
the statutory allowance of 
$40,599,551.64 will allow 
$44,795,688. in this account. 

With regard to the School 
Committee's action in re- 
ducing the requested appro- 
priation for Alterations and 
Repairs to $801,747, I can 
only express surprise and 
disapproval. Nothing can be 
plainer than the fact that 
we must spend every dollar 
that we can possibly afford 
to spend on maintaining 
school buildings in suitable 
condition. For these reasons, 
I urge the School Commit- 
tee to reconsider its ill ad- 
vised action in requesting 
less than had been allowed 
for Alteration and Repairs. 
A request for a supplimen- 
tal appropriation for Alter- 
ations and Repairs in the 
amount of $1,000,000. at the 
proper time would appear to 
be the most appropriate ac- 
tion to correct this error. 
Respectfully, 
(Signed) 
John F. Collins 
Mayor 

Placed on file.

Gentlemen: 

I am forwarding herewith 
a copy of a communication 
which answers an inquiry I 
made of the Corporation 
Counsel in respect to the 
salary schedule adopted by 
the School Committee at its 
meetins; of April 3, 1965. 

This inquiry was prompted 
by my desire to insure that 
the financial obligations im- 
posed upon the City by the 
action of your Committee 
conformed with the require- 
ments of law. 

The enclosed letter from 
the Corporation Counsel of 
the City of Boston is self 
explanatory but, I am sure, 
that the Law Department 
would be most cooperative 
in answering any further 
questions which you feel are 
pertinent. 

Respectfully,

April 6, 1965 
Mr. Henry T. Brennan 
Supervisor of Budgets 
Administrative Services 
Department 
City Hall, Boston 
Dear Mr. Brennan: 

This is in reply to your 
inquiry respecting the valid- 
ity of the salary schedule 
for school teachers and 
other school personnel en- 
tailing salary increases, 
which was adopted by the 
School Committee at its 
meeting on April 3. 

The conclusion is inescap- 
able that this salary sched- 
ule is illegal, void and of no 
force and effect for at least 
two reasons. 

First, while at the same 
meeting an order was 
adopted appropriating $40,- 
599,551.64 for general school 
purposes, that order had no 



force or effect prior to its 
approval by the Mayor, or 
passage over his veto, or 
the expiration of fifteen 
days after presentation to 
him without action by him; 
and so there was no appro- 
priation whatsoever in ex- 
istence for the adoption of a 
salary schedule. St. 1936, c. 
224, s. 3. 

Furthermore, St. 1875, c. 
241, s. 5, as amended by 
St. 1963, c. 786, s. 4, ex- 
pressly prohibits the School 
Committee from increasing 
the salary of any person in 
the service of the School 
Department "unless ... a 
general appropriation for 
salary increases is available 
for the payment of such in- 
creases in such year." I take 
this provision to require an 
appropriation captioned "For 
Salary Increases." I have 
examined the above-men- 
tioned appropriation order 
and find therein no such 
item; so that when the ap- 
propriation order takes ef- 
fect, it will not support the 
salary schedule even if it 
were to be readopted at that 
time. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed)

SUPERINTENDENT'S 

REPORT ON FIRE IN 
EVERETT SCHOOL 

All pupils who were dis- 
placed by the fire which 
broke out in the Everett 
School on Saturday evening, 
April 24, 1965, were placed 
in classes in nearby schools 
this morning, Monday, April 
26, 1965. Thanks to the 
splendid cooperation of many 
members of our staff, this 
task was accomplished 
promptly and efficiently. 

I wish to commend and 
thank most sincerely Miss 
Kathryn F. Mahoney, Prin- 
cipal of the Hyde-Everett 
District; Mr. Edwin G. Mc- 
Caffrey, Chief Schoolhouse 
Custodian; Mr. John J. 
Kane, Assistant Schoolhouse 
Custodian; Mr. William A. 
McPherson, Superintendent 
of Construction; Mr. Archie 
Walsh, Acting Director of 
Safety; and all teachers of 
the school for working from 
the time of the fire to the 
opening of school today to 
be sure that there would be 
no interruption in the in- 
structional program of the 
displaced pupils. 

I am particularly grateful 
to the staff of custodians 
who made themselves avail- 
able at a moment's notice 
and worked continuously 
from early Sunday morning 
until all the pupils' books 
and teachers' materials had 
been properly placed in shop- 
ping bags and transported 
to the new locations. With- 
out their help it would have 
been impossible to have the 



classes in operation this 
morning. 

Sincere appreciation is al- 
so due the cooperating per- 
sonnel of the Dwight, Wil- 
liam Bacon, Charles C. Perk- 
ins, and Abraham Lincoln 
Schools, which received 
these pupils. 

As Superintendent of the 
Boston Public Schools, I am 
tremendously proud of the 
characteristically wonderful 
spirit in which our personnel 
responded to this emer- 
gency. The loyalty and >.he 
dedication of the members 
of our staff to their profes- 
sion and to the children 
whom they serve in all dis- 
tricts of our city is a con- 
stant source of inspiration 
and gratification.

REPORT OF 
SUPERINTENDENT ON 
HYDE SCHOOL FIRE 
All pupils who were dis- 
placed by the fire which 
broke out in the Hyde 
School on Saturday evening, 
May 29, 1965, were placed in 
classes in other school 
buildings on Tuesday, June 
1, 1965. Thanks to the won- 
derful cooperation of school 
administrators, teachers, po- 
lice officials, and others, all 
arrangements for the trans- 
fer of pupils, textbooks, and 
other educational materials 
and equipment were com- 
pleted so that there was no 
interruption in the instruc- 
tional program of the dis- 
placed pupils. 

I wish to express my ap- 
preciation and commenda- 
tion of the assistance given 
by Miss Marguerite G. Sul- 
livan, Deputy Superin- 
tendent; Mr. William G. To- 
bin, Associate Superintend- 
ent; Miss Kathryn F. Ma- 
honey, Principal of the 
Hyde-Everett District; Mr. 
John H. Kane, Assistant 
Schoolhouse Custodian; Mr. 
Joseph Chalifoux, Deputy 
Superintendent of Construc- 
tion of the Department of 
School Buildings: Mr. Louis 
L. DeGiacomo, Director of 
Safety; Mr. Archie Walsh: 
Reverend Royden Richard- 
son, and the personnel of 
Police Division #10 who 



provided cruising cars, traf- 
fic control, and protection 
of the building. I also wish 
to thank the personnel of 
the Girls' High School, the 
Asa Gray School, and the 
Peter Faneuil School which 
received these pupils. 

On Tuesday morning 
three seventh grades and 
three eighth grades were 
conducted on foot to Girls 
High School by teachers 
and four uniformed police 
officers who controlled traf- 
fice to protect the pupils. 
Pupils of grades four, five, 
and six were transported to 
the Peter Faneuil School 
on two buses with attend- 
ants in charge. The buses 
were escorted by police 
cruising cars. Pupils of 
Kindergarten and grades 
one and two were con- 
ducted to the Asa Gray 
School. All transfers on the 
first school day after the 
fire proceeded smoothly and 
uneventfully. 

STATEMENT OF MR. 
O'CONNOR ON 

SALARY SCHEDULE 

The following was or- 
dered spread upon the pub- 
lic record: 

I hereby request permis- 
sion to have my statement 
in regard to the Salary 
Schedule entered as part of 
the minutes of the public 
meeting of June 7, 1965. I 
am unable to attend per- 
sonally. 

My comments are the re- 
sult of our meeting with 
the Mayor in his office on 
Tuesday, May 24, 1965. 

I take the responsibility 
for making the request that 
the million dollars needed 
to complete the funds neces- 
sary to provide all our em- 
ployees with a substantial 
raise be taken from the 
money allowed by the 
Mayor for Alterations and 
Repairs to School Build- 
ings. 

This amount did not in- 
crease the total amount of 
money the Mayor has al- 
lowed us, hence our total 
budget was balanced. I 
believed that salaries for 
our personnel were more 
important than paint and 
bricks. The Mayor disa- 
greed and we had to start 



146 



JUNE 7, 1965 



again. It was agreed that we 
had $400,000 available for 
salaries. The Mayor agreed 
to give us an additional 
$200,000 and it was sug- 
gested that another $100,- 
000 was available for tem- 
porary teachers if we kept 
within the budget. 

Our Chairman, Mrs. 
Louis Day Hicks, asked the 
Mayor for more money, but 
the Mayor said, "No," and 
that there was enough 
money available to give our 
academic staff a substan- 
tial raise. School Commit- 
tee Member, Mr. Joseph Lee, 
asked if money could be 
made available for stenog- 
raphers and custodians. 
The Mayor said he would 
not permit this because 
their salaries were competi- 
tive with those of city em- 
ployees in other depart- 
ments and that we were al- 
ways complaining our 
teacher salaries were not 
competitive. 

At a later time I wanted 
to be sure that the Mayor 
and School Committee were 
in agreement on the purpose 
of the additional funds — 
that we did not break faith 
with the Mayor. I asked the 
Mayor to assure me that his 
purpose in providing this 
money was for academic 
salaries. Hence, I am cer- 
tain at this time that this 
money must be used solely 
for our academic salaries. 

I am very sorry for the 
non-academic employes who 
will get no raise, but it is 
not the fault of the School 
Committee. We tried and 
could not get the money. I 
add that we must be honest 
with our teachers in that 
the Mayor allowed the 
money for them and they 
should get it. The record of 
the minutes of the meeting 
taken by Mr. Thomas Ford 
will certify to the above. 

After the meeting I stat- 
ed that I would not be avail- 
able for any meetings for 
two weeks because I was 
going away on a vacation. 

Assistant Superintendent 
John Canty, Mr. Arthur 
Gartland, and I left the 
Mayor's office and discussed 
the problem out on the City 
Hall Plaza. I told both men 
that, if necessary, the Com- 



mittee should hold a special 
meeting to settle the salary 
schedule, even though I 
could not be present, in 
order to allow Assistant 
Superintendent Canty to 
send out the contracts for 
new teachers. I wanted: 1. 
a minimum for bachelors of 
$5200, 2. an across-the-board 
raise of at least $480 for all 
academic personnel. 

I would like to be record- 
ed in favor of the above if a 
formal vote develops at this 
meeting, June 7, 1965. A 
"No" vote if there is a mo- 
tion to distribute the money 
to non-academic personnel.

A STATEMENT OF 
POLICY and RECOM- 
MENDATIONS 
ON THE SUBJECT OF 
RACIAL IMBALANCE 
AND EDUCATION IN THE 
BOSTON PUBLIC 
SCHOOLS 
Submitted to 
The School Committee 
of the 
City of Boston 
by 
WILLIAM H. OHREN- 

BERGER 
Superintendent of Public 
Schools 
June, 1965 
STATEMENT OF EDUCA- 
TIONAL POLICY 
I herewith submit a state- 
ment of policy and recom- 
mendations to the School 
Committee of the City of 
Boston on the subject of 
"Racial Imbalance and Edu- 
cation" as it may apply to 
the Boston Public Schools. 

First and foremost, one 
must recognize and pay 
tribute to the service and 
dedication of the members 
of the Advisory Committee 
.in Racial Imbalance and 
Education. Obviously, men 
of talent and good will gave 
generously of their time and 
abilities in the preparation 
of this comprehensive Re- 
port. I am confident that the 
Advisory Committee was 
sincerely motivated to as- 
sist those school systems in 
the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts which have had to 



meet the serious and com- 
plex problems of racial im- 
balance and disadvantaged 
pupils. It is in this same 
spirit of good will and with 
a sincere desire to do what 
"is right — educationally" 
that this report is made to 
the School Committee of 
the City of Boston. 

The Advisory Committee 
was requested in March, 
1964, by the State Board of 
Education and Dr. Owen B. 
Kiernan, Commissioner of 
Education, to determine (1) 
if racial imbalance exists in 
the public schools of the 
Commonwealth, (2) if it 
exists, to determine if ra- 
cial imbalance is education- 
ally harmful, and (3) if 
found harmful, to recom- 
mend ways of eliminating 
it. 

The Advisory Committee 
responded in April, 1965, by 
(1) stating that racial im- 
balance does exist in some 
55 schools of the Common- 
wealth, (2) concluding that 
racial imbalance is educa- 
tionally harmful, and (3) 
recommending ways to elim- 
inate it. 

With a desire to clarify 
important terms used re- 
peatedly in the Advisory 
Committee's Report, I must 
state that I am somewhat 
confused by the Committee's 
unclear use of the phrase 
"Racially unbalanced. " On 
page 1 of their Report, the 
term is used to mean "a 
ratio between Negro and 
other students in public 
schools which is clearly out 
of balance with the racial 
balance of the society in 
which the Negro children 
study, serve and work." If I 
assume that "society" here 
means geographical Boston, 
then I must also assume that 
the Committee feels that an 
ideal racial balance in every 
Boston school would be ap- 
proximately 23% Negro and 
77% white. Elsewhere in the 
Advisory Report, however, 
the Committee seems to feel 
that other ratios — 50-50 or 
60-40 — constitute schools 
that are not "sharply out of 
balance." Perhaps it would 
be unwise to expect or re- 
quire the Committee to pro- 
duce a rigidly precise ratio 
to accompany its definition 



162 



JUNE 14, 1965 



of balance or imbalance. But 
it does leave some uncer- 
tainty as to just when a 
"racially balanced" school is 
accomplished. 

The Advisory Committee 
recognizes no definitive basis 
by which one may determine 
when racial balance has 
been achieved. A well inte- 
grated society is not one 
constructed solely according 
to fixed racial ratios. The 
quantitative concepts of bal- 
ance and imbalance cannot 
be the sole consideration for 
identifying and solving the 
problem. 

Although racial balance 
or imbalance is extremely 
difficult to define, I agree 
that by those definitions 
used above racial imbalance 
does exist in some Boston 
schools as a reflection of 
racially imbalanced neigh- 
borhoods. Concomitantly, it 
is fair to state that neither 
present nor former Boston 
school officials contributed 
in anj» manner to the 
growth of imbalanced 
schools or neighborhoods. 
It also is fair to state that 
the Boston Public Schools 
have c o n s c ientiously at- 
tempted to educate every 
child to the maximum of 
his ability without regard 
to his race, creed, or color. 
Our schools have never dis- 
criminated against any child 
or teacher; have never 
agreed with or practiced the 
policy of "separate but 
equal education"; and have 
always regarded the Negro 
pupil as equally able to 
learn and succeed as his 
white classmate. 

The Advisory Committee 
has concluded that racial 
imbalance in schools is edu- 
cationally harmful. In their 
Report are statements from 
psychologists and sociolo- 
gists presented to buttress 
this conclusion. With due 
reference to the ability and 
integrity of the men quot- 
ed, their opinions cannot be 
considered as irrefutable 
evidence because there is 
wide divergence of opinion 
among authorities on this 
question. Such diversity is 
readily apparent in an arti- 
cle by Richard Neff, staff 
writer for the Christian 



Science Monitor, on Febru- 
ary 21, 1964: 

"Reverend Robert F. 
Drinan, Dean of the Bos- 
ton College Law School, and 
Dr. Kenneth Clark, nation- 
ally known psychologist at 
City College at New York, 
have both been saying in re- 
cent months that much more 
research is needed before 
anyone can say for sure 
that Negro children benefit 
from integrated schooling." 

In the same article Mr. 
Neff states: 

"Both men (Dr. Thomas 
F. Pettigrew and Dr. Gerald 
S. Lesser of Harvard Uni- 
versity) admitted that no 
scholar has yet proved that 
racially imbalanced schools 
are a more important factor 
than social and economic 
environment or low quality 
of schools in retarding young 
Negroes' learning." 

Mr. Martin Mayer, author 
of a number of books includ- 
ing "The Schools," and 
"Madison Avenue. U.S.A.," 
reported in the New York 
Times, May 2, 1965: 

"Not long ago many of us 
felt that a large share of the 
Negro failure in the schools 
was itself the product of 
segregation; but almost no- 
body whose opinion is worth 
considering believes it to- 
day. Personally, I think that 
open enrollment did make 
some positive difference in 
the accomplishment of the 
Negro children who rode the 
buses — but I can't prove it 
and neither can anyone 
else." 

Dr. Vincent F. Conroy, 
Director of Field Studies in 
the Center for Research and 
Development on Educational 
Differences, and Director of 
Study of the Educational 
and Legal Aspects of School 
Integration for Harvard Uni- 
versity, wrote in the Spring 
1965 issue of the Harvard 
Graduate Bulletin: 

"Who really knows . . . 
what the comparative ef- 
fects of segregation and non- 
segregated education are on 
children, when variables 
are manipulated from place 
to place and grade to grade? 
. . . Administrators must be 
able and ready to act on 
problems as they occur. But 
we have another obligation 
to discover what is true of 



JUNE 14, 1965 



163 



all the claims and counter 
claims in the public debate 
on racial segregation in 
schools. Only research and 
careful study by people who 
can free themselves from the 
day-by-day concerns of 
training can provide these 
answers." 

While the Advisory Com- 
mittee Report alleges that 
racial imbalance has a harm- 
ful effect upon the learner 
and the learning situation, 
other opinions would indi- 
cate that the Advisory Com- 
mittee's findings in this mat- 
ter are non-conclusive. 

I am unable to agree that 
a racially imbalanced school 
is per se educationally 
harmful. However, it is my 
firm conviction that inter- 
racial learning experiences 
are socially desirable. It is 
my hope that the day will 
soon come when our total 
society — neighborhoods, 
churches and schools — will 
live together in harmony, 
understanding, and love. I 
am aware of the contribu- 
tion which our public schools 
must make to achieve this 
goal. All our children must 
be given an opportunity 
through school experiences 
to learn to live together in 
an adult democracy. There 
is no disagreement whatso- 
ever between the Advisory 
Committee opinion and mine 
on the social desirability of 
interracial learning experi- 
ences. The worthiness of this 
end is indisputable; it is only 
with some aspects of the 
means and /or methods rec- 
ommended to accomplish 
this end that I respectfully 
disagree. 

At this point I must 
make it clear that, though 
educators recognize and ac- 
cept the school's shared 
responsibility for achieving 
the goal of an integrated 
society, I do not believe 
that the public schools of 
America can or should ac- 
cept the total responsibility 
for racial integration. It is 
my conviction that the pri- 
mary responsibility of the 
school is the education of 
every boy and girl to the 
maximum of his or her abil- 
ity. Unfortunately and un- 
fairly, the schools today are 
expected by some to assume 



a myriad of duties which 
rightfully are the responsi- 
bilities of the home, the 
church, or the community. 
The responsibility for the 
solution of this complex so- 
cial problem rests with the 
total community. On this 
subject, newspaper colum- 
nist and editor, Ralph Mc- 
Gill, a prominent spokes- 
man for civil rights, states 
very clearly in the Boston 
Sunday Globe of March 15, 
1964: 

"It has been the wheel 
that has created the huge 
ghettos of the Eastern cities 
— Negro and white. This is 
why the cost of generations 
of segregated practices is 
now being paid nationally. 
In some of the cities the de 
facto, geographic segrega- 
tion has caused those in a 
hurry to place the burden 
on schools and educators. It 
does not rightfully belong 
there. In those cities the 
basic problem is housing, 
not education. It is not 
quite just to have education 
suddenly asked to pay the 
cost and 'solve' the prob- 
lem." 

Integration in each neigh- 
borhood is the only solution 
for integration in our 
schools. It follows that 
when we succeed in abolish- 
ing ghettos we will auto- 
matically eliminate racially 
imbalanced schools. The 
problem of integrating peo- 
ple rests on the total com- 
munity—Boston, Metropoli- 
tan Boston, and the entire 
Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts. The necessity for 
a policy of "Open Enroll- 
ment" in our schools will 
be ended once we adopt a 
policy of "Open Housing" 
in every community in this 
state. It is as simple as that. 
The political, civic, relig- 
ious, and educational lead- 
ers of this Commonwealth 
must join forces in a dra- 
matic program to secure 
proper housing throughout 
the Commonwealth for our 
Negro citizens now forced 
into ghettos. Racially imbal- 
anced schools are the result 
of these racial islands. The 
schools did not cause them. 
The ghettos are caused by 
those communities through- 
out the state which deny 
housing to Negroes by 



164 



JUNE 14, 1965 



means of devious tactics 
every bit as repugent as 
the voter registration tech- 
niques utilizer) by some un- 
scrupulous communities of 
the South. 

Following last y e a r's 
school boycott in Boston, 
Cornelius Dalton, editorial 
columnist for the Boston 
Traveler wrote: 

"Racial imbalance in the 
public schools will not be 
ended by a one-day boycott 
or a one-year boycott. The 
School Committee can make 
gradual adjustments, such 
as the plans for the location 
of new schools, but the 
overall problem will not be 
solved until the housing 
problem is solved." 

George Berkley, Chair- 
man of the Boston Finance 
Commission, comm e n t e d 
April 20, 1965, as folows: 

"Boston has racial prob- 
lems . . . But suburban com- 
munities, through their 
snob zoning and their re- 
fusal to put up public hous- 
ing, are the chief practi- 
tioners of segregation in the 
metropolitan area." 

Mr. Berkley continued by 
charging that through zon- 
ing and other devices the 
suburban communities have 
managed to restrict mi- 
nority group representation 
to mere tokenism, shutting 
out the vast majority of 
Negro families. 

Despite these eloquent 
warnings, there are still 
among us those who persist 
in unfounded, malicious at- 
tacks focused upon the pub- 
lic schools of Boston. Er- 
roneous charges and slan- 
derous statements reflect- 
ing upon the dedication, 
ability, and racial tolerance 
of our classroom teachers 
have been given wide expo- 
sure by some newspapers 
and various audience-par- 
ticipation radio programs 
of this city. Such vilifying 
statements have served only 
to inflame the emotions of 
many people. The dedicated 
men and women who labor 
daily with professional skill 
and infinite patience in the 
predominantly Negro 
schools of Boston are 
shocked and demoralized by 
these irrational and unwar- 
ranted attacks. I deplore 



the tactics of those who at- 
tempt to place the entire 
problem of race relations 
upon education. The burden 
should not be placed on the 
schools. As Ralph McGill 
so wisely said: "It does not 
rightfully belong there." 

Clearly, the schools alone 
cannot overcome artificial 
residential barriers, or in- 
sure equality of economic 
opportunity, or eliminate 
unreasoning adult preju- 
dices, or abolish poverty 
with all of its social rami- 
fications. No single agency 
of society can hope to 
achieve all the desirable ob- 
jectives relevant to these 
important issues. 

As previously stated, the 
Boston Public Schools will 
continue to assume their 
share of the responsibility 
and to exert even greater 
efforts toward achieving the 
desirable goal of a racially 
integrated society. No Bos- 
ton school official has ever 
taken the position that the 
races should be kept sepa- 
rate in the neighborhoods 
of our nation or in the class- 
rooms of our schools. How- 
ever, in planning for socially 
desirable interracial educa- 
tional experiences, one can- 
not abandon the basic re- 
sponsibility of educating 
every child to the maximum 
of his ability. Nor can one 
embark upon plans which 
may be socially desirable 
but educationally harmful. 

Racial considerations can- 
not be the sole standard 
upon which to base any 
educational decisions. There- 
fore, I must reject the sug- 
gestion of the Advisory 
Committee to exchange 
white and Negro pupils in 
a cross-busing program. It 
is not educationally sound 
to adopt a proposal in which 
the disadvantages would far 
outweigh the advantages. 
Any bus program adopted 
solely for the purpose of 
racial integration could be 
harmful to white and Negro 
pupils alike; could have a 
disruptive influence on the 
citizens of this city; and 
finally, could weaken those 
bonds which ideally bind 
the school to the home and 
to the local neighborhood. 

Dr. Frances L. Ilg and 
Dr. Louise Bates Ames, Di-

rectors of Gessel Institute 
of Child Development, and 
nationally recognized child 
psychologists, when recent- 
ly asked if busing students 
to obtain racial balance in 
schools was a good idea, re- 
plied that such a program 
showed no concern for the 
needs of the individual stu- 
dent. 

"Racial harmony is cer- 
tainly important," said Dr. 
Ilg, "but the primary pur- 
pose of our school system 
is to provide an education 
for our youngsters." 

Although I cannot advo- 
cate a student exchange 
bus program, I can and will 
outline a specific plan de- 
signed to promote inter- 
racial learning experiences 
consistent with sound edu- 
cational principles. Admit- 
tedly, I have no panacea for 
the racial problems of man- 
kind or even for this com- 
munity in which we live. I 
know of no educator who 
has because there is no 
simple answer pleasing to 
all. Those who give priority 
to sociological considera- 
tions will disagree with 
those whose concern is for 
education. Those who long 
for the integration of our 
community will differ from 
those who are primarily 
concerned with the preser- 
vation of values and tradi- 
tions which they hold dear. 
There are those to whom 
peace is preeminent, and 
others who find conflict ex- 
pedient. This much is clear, 
an equitable and harmoni- 
ous solution to the problem 
of integration is best found 
in a society which is truly 
committed to the doctrine 
of "people helping people" 
— a society in which social 
change is accomplished by 
the American processes of 
creative innovation, an open 
and frank discussion by men 
of good will, and a firm be- 
lief in the dignity and worth 
of each individual. 

Toward our goal of pro- 
viding more interracial 
learning experiences and ex- 
panded compensatory pro- 
grams for the pupils of the 
Boston Public Schools, I 
recommend the program 
outlines below and deline- 
ated in Part IV of this re- 
port:

PART II 
THE RECOMMENDA- 
TIONS OF THE 
ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
The Advisory Committee 
summarized its recommen- 
dations for the Boston Pub- 
lic Schools on Page 9 of its 
Report. The members of 
that Committee, profes- 
sionally competent in many 
areas, but aware of their 
limited practical experience 
in dealing with the complex 
p tblems of urban public 
school education, qualified 
their recommendations by 
stating: "In making these 
recommendations and sug- 
gestions, we have tried not 
to be dogmatic. This is not 



166 



JUNE 14, 1965 



an educational blueprint. 
These suggestion are not 
definitive or exhaustive. 
They can and should be im- 
proved and modified by 
others." 

I agree that there can be 
no definitive blueprint to 
follow nor any dogmatic ap- 
proach for achieving our 
common goal— th best pos- 
sible education for all the 
children of Boston. My as- 
sociates and I are the pro- 
fessional educators most in- 
timately concerned with and 
knowledgeable of the many 
facets of the Boston Public 
Schools. It is our responsi- 
bility to initiate and imple- 
ment programs which are 
educationally sound. In the 
light of this experience and 
knowledge, my colleagues 
and I, after long and deliber- 
ate study of the Advisory 
Committee's recommenda- 
tions, have accepted those 
proposals we feel are of 
benefit and applicable to our 
school system, and have had 
to reject some and to modify 
others. 

My reactions J o the rec- 
ommendations summarized 
on Page 9 on the Advisory 
Committee Reprt are as 
follows: 

A. "Changes in the present 

open enrollment policy." 
I am in agreement with 
the recommendations of the 
Advisory Committee, and 
my suggested modifica- 
tions in our existing policy 
are found in my proposals 
to the School Committee 
contained in Part IV of 
this report. It has been rec- 
ognized for several years 
that a policy of open enroll- 
ment has proved to be a 
practical and reasonably ef- 
fective measure for demo- 
cratically reducing racial 
imbalance. 

B. "Changes in the program 

of compensatory 

education." 
Boston is in the forefront 
in the field of compensatory 
education for disadvantaged 
children. We have recognized 
for some time that the edu- 
cational practices of the past 
were not meeting the needs 
of many students from the 
disadvantaged areas. We 
hrve known that the basic 
solution to the problems of 
these children, Negro and 



white, is through superior 
schools saturated with edu- 
cational services in one vast 
effort to overcome the seri- 
ous educational handicaps 
which limit children from 
poorer homes and communi- 
ties. Within the restrictions 
of the budget, the Boston 
Public Schools have already 
made a vigorous assault on 
these problems. 

Boston's multi-phased pro- 
grams of compensatory edu- 
cation currently in opera- 
tion are fully explained in 
Part III of this report. My 
recommendations for the 
expansion and extension of 
these services for disadvan- 
taged children are found in 
Part IV: 

C. "The construction and 

location of new 
buildings according to 
the most modern 
concepts and along new 
attendance lines." 
Since 1963 I have been 
pressing for a massive crash 
program for the construc- 
tion of new schools. With 
changing conditions, these 
schools would be located, 
wherever possible, so as to 
embrace the larger neigh- 
borhood concept by draw- 
ing from wider geographic 
areas, thus producing a more 
racially balanced school 
population. 

Details of this program 
are found in Part IV. 

D. "The closing of some 

buildings in the Fall of 
1965 and the transfer of 
students from these 
buildings to those which 
will be retained." 
These proposals raise seri- 
ous educational and fiscal 
questions. The Advisory 
Committee recommends the 
immediate closing of seven 
buildings and the assignment 
of the 1632 uprooted kinder- 
garten through Grade VI 
children to fifty-five relo- 
catable school units in some 
distant schoolyards. Boston 
has had considerable experi- 
ence with relocatable school 
units, formerly known as 
"portables." Such units have 
been proved educationally 
undesirable. Were I to ac- 
cept this recommendation, 
the purchase of sixty-one 
and not fifty-five such units 
would be required to main- 
tain the desirable present 



JUNE 14, 1965 



167 



class sizes. Otherwise, 
double grades wou'd have to 
be assigned to some relo- 
catable units. This is not 
educationally sound. 

At $10,500 per unit, sixty- 
one units would cost $640,- 
500. Allowing fifty children 
to a bus, thirty-three buses 
would be required to trans- 
port the 1632 children to 
these units, unless a "milk 
drop" system of delivering 
the children is employed. 
The latter is undesirable as 
the children's school day 
would be shortened at the 
very time when competent 
educators are recommending 
a longer school day. The 
rental of thirty-three buses 
would cost $1650 per day or 
$297,000 for 180 days. This 
proposal alone would cost a 
total of $937,500 of which 
$297,000 would be a recur- 
ring annual cost until new 
buildings can be erected. Of 
the seven schools specifically 
recommended by the Ad- 
visory Commit e for imme- 
diate closing, six are sched- 
uled for replacement in my 
capital improvement pro- 
gram for new school con- 
struction. The replacement 
of the seventh school — the 
Joshua Bates — hinges upon 
the crystallization of plans 
for the construction of a 
hospital complex in this 
area. 

E. "The exchange of stu- 
dents between other 
school buildings to be 
retained." 

This recommendation of 
the Advisory Committee 
necessitates mandatory 
cross busing for the purpose 
of exchanging Negro and 
white students solely to 
achieve better racial bal- 
ance. It should be noted 
here that daily transporta- 
tion of Boston school chil- 
dren has been provided 
solely to relieve conditions 
of overcrowding which im- 
pair the quality of educa- 
tion. 

In Part I of this report, 
I cautioned against the 
adoption of plans that are 
socially desirable but edu- 
cationally harmful. The Ad- 
visory Committee's recom- 
mendation unfortunate- 
ly falls within this descrip- 
tion. 



I feel that parents — white 
or Negrc -who experience 
apprehensions inherent in 
the forced removal of their 
children from the neighbor- 
hood school should not be 
compelled to submit to it. 
Those who do not experience 
such apprehensions should 
be quite free to continue 
sending their children to 
any school that has vacant 
seats as they are now per- 
mitted under the present 
open enrollment policy. 

I feel — and I also imagine 
that the Advisory Commit- 
tee undoubtedly felt — a 
strong conflict between two 
justifiable goals, that of an 
integrated society which I 
advocate and the natural re- 
sponsibility that any school 
system bears in the avoid- 
ance of severe apprehensions 
and disturbances among the 
parents, both white and Ne- 
gro. 

For my part, however, I 
feel strongly that it is a re- 
sponsibility of the Boston 
Public Schools, insofar as is 
humanly possible, to pro- 
mote change and improve- 
ment in the schools on a 
cooperative, non-compulsory 
basis. As a democratic insti- 
tution operating in a demo- 
cratic society, I feel that 
my responsibility is to all 
the people and to all the 
parents of the City of Bos- 
ton, not to any one group, 
be that group Negro or 
white. I, therefore , hope 
that the solutions to the 
problem of imbalance in our 
schools proposed in this re- 
port will advance both the 
cause of racial justice, and 
of cooperative and non-com- 
pulsory change and im- 
provement in Boston educa- 
tion. 

Let no person interpret 
the above statements as 
building an argument 
against racial balance in the 
Boston schools. Far from it. 
It is my sincere conviction 
that my recommendations 
toward the goal of interra- 
cial learning experiences in 
Part IV promise a less dis- 
ruptive and more enduring 
solution to the problem. 
F. "Changes in the assign- 
ment of students to jun- 
ior high schools com- 
bined with compensatory

education linked to racial 
balancing." 
It is my opinion that the 
recommendations of open 
enrollment, the compensa- 
tory and enrichment pro- 
grams, and the construction 
of new middle schools as 
outlined in Part IV offer a 
positive approach to the 
solution of the problem of 
racial imbalance in the jun- 
ior high schools. 

It is my intention to satu- 
rate the present predomi- 
nantly Negro junior high 
schools with extensive com- 
pensatory and enrichment 
programs to the end that 
all parents, white and Ne- 
gro, exercising freedom of 
choice, will seek to enroll 
their children in these four 
schools to avail themselves 
of these added educational 
advantages. 

I shall exert every effort 
to implement this program 
during the coming school 
year. 

G. "Changes in the curricu- 
lum at Girls' High and 
the assignment of stu- 
dents at Latin and Tech- 
nical High Schools." 
I am basically in agree- 
ment with the Advisory 
Committee's recommenda- 
tions for strengthening the 
curriculum at Girls' High 
School. Some of these pro- 
posals have already been 
implemented. Other curricu- 
lum changes scheduled for 
the Fail of 1965 as detailed 
in Part IV of this report 
will iurther upgrade the 
program of studies in this 
school. 

In regard to the recom- 
mendation of the Advisory 
Committee that "special ef- 
forts could be made to in- 
crease the number of non- 
white students at Latin and 
Technical High Schools," it 
must be pointed out that 
special efforts have been 
and ar? being made to in- 
crease the number of non- 
white students at Latin and 
Technical High Schools by 
the establishment of Ad- 
vanced Work Classes for 
the academically talented 
of all races, and by exten- 
sive individual and group 
tutoring by Grade VI teach- 
ers of nil our predominantly 
Negro schools. 



In adaition, I fully expect 
that, as the direct result of 
our continuing and expand- 
ing compensatory and en- 
richment efforts designed 
for disadvantaged pupils, as 
detailed in Parts III and IV 
of this report, an increasing 
number of non-white pupils 
will be successful in gaining 
admittance to the Latin and 
Technical High Schools by 
successfully passing the 
competitive examinations. 

To conclude my evaluation 
of the Advisory Committee's 
recommendations, I must 
comment briefly on the 
Commil tee's use of social 
scientists and the data of 
social science to substanti- 
ate basic conclusions con- 
tained .n the Advisory Com- 
mittee Report. It is gener- 
ally acknowledged that the 
social sciences are as yet in 
the embryonic stage. The 
tools presently developed for 
the exploration of difficult 
and complex social and psy- 
chological questions are far 
from being perfected. The 
data obtained from such 
tools are open to a wide 
varietv of interpretations 
even when the question has 
been adequately defined 
(which it has not in the 
Advisory Report) and the 
collection of the data rigidly 
controlled (which again is 
not the case in the Advisory 
Report). 

The authors of the Ad- 
visory Committee Report 
and their consultants "sur- 
veyed the literature," ex- 
tracting from it those 
"findings" or opinions which 
support their point of view. 
The opposite point of view 
could hn substantiated in a 
similar manner. To cite one 
example there is the opinion 
of Di>:. Pearl and David 
Ausubci writing in Part II 
of "Education in Depressed 
Areas. ' edited by Dr. A. 
Harrv Passow, Columbia 
University Press, 1963: 
"Artificial attempts to 
end je facto school seg- 
regation, caused by 
neighborhood segrega- 
tion of Negroes in par- 
ticular urban slums, 
are socially and psy- 
chologically unsound. It 
is not only impractical 
to transport white chil- 
dren to schools in dis- 



JUNE 14, 1965

tant predominately Ne- 
gro neighborhoods just 
for the purpose of main- 
taining the principle of 
racially mixed classes, 
but it also victimizes 
individual white chil- 
dren and thereby in- 
creases racial ten- 
sions . . . " 
Other such opinions could 
be cited, all of them ex- 
pressed by reputable social 
scientists. Thus, anyone who 
had the time and the incli- 
nation could "survey the 
literature" and emerge with 
a series of equally impres- 
sive 'findings" or opinions 
which rould be used to but- 
tress a point of view oppos- 
ing the one expressed in the 
research papers in the Ad- 
visory Committee Report. 

Simplv stated, social sci- 
ence, which is not an ex- 
act science, is still in its 
infancv. It needs long and 
careful nurturing before its 
"findings" may be consid- 
ered scientifically valid. 

The Advisory Committee's 
recommendations were mo- 
tivated by the desire to 
provide the best possible 
educauon for disadvan- 
taged children. There could 
be no worthier goal. I pay 
tribute to the Committee's 
sincere efforts toward this 
end. 

The Boston Public 
Schools, similarly motivated, 
and cognizant of the special 
needs of disadvantaged chil- 
dren, I save for years carried 
on special educational pro- 
grams designed to achieve 
this same worthy goal. 
PART in 
BOSTON'S CURRENT 
PROGRAMS FOR DISAD- 
VANTAGED CHILDREN 
The Boston Public 
Schools have been and are 
exploring conscientious- 
ly the many facets of com- 
pensatory education for all 
disadvantaged children. Wo 
recognize that the school 
must play a prominent role 
in preparing all students for 
life in an integrated society. 
We must explore every tech- 
nique and device which will 
enable us to raise a spi ration- 
al levels develop latent tal- 
ents, and create a positive 
self-image in every child in 
the Boston Public Schools. 
Toward these ends, policies 



for furthering interracial 
learning experiences cou- 
pled with programs of com- 
pensatory education have 
been and are in operation. 
A description of these poli- 
cies and programs follows: 
COMPENSATORY 
EDUCATION 
New Reading Techniques: 

Two years ago, 1962-1963, 
new reading techniques as 
presented in the Phonetic 
Keys tc Reading program, 
used in conjunction with 
basal readers, were intro- 
duced in the elementary 
schools on a pilot basis. The 
program met with such suc- 
cess that it was extended 
in 1963-1964 to all Grade T 
classes in the city and in 
1964-1965 to all Grade II 
classes The results of the 
1963-1964 reading experi- 
ences in Grade I are re- 
flected in a comparison of 
medians on the Gates Pri- 
mary Reading Tests for 
Grade IT in September, 1964, 
across the city. 

The majority of the 
schools named in Table III 
C 1 of the Advisory Com- 
mittee Report achieved no- 
ticeable growth after one 
year's exposure to this new 
approach to the teaching 
of reading. This is shown 
by the statistics on the fol- 
lowing chart relative to the 
school districts involved. 
Every school named in Ta- 
ble III C 1 of the Advisory 
Committee Report is in- 
cluded in this chart.

OPERATION 

COUNTERPOISE 
In September, 1963, Coun- 
terpoise, a pilot massive at- 
tack on the needs of disad- 
vantaged children, was in- 
troduced in the Henry L. 
Higginson District of upper 
Roxbury. I n September, 



170 



JUNE 14, 1965 



1964, the program was ex- 
panded to twenty - lour 
school buildings in twelve 
districts. This expansion 
provided compensatory edu- 
cation lor 8.800 of the 10,- 
455 so-'io-economically dis- 
advantaged pupils enrolled 
in th.^sc districts. 

Counterpoise aims to help 
these children achieve de- 
spite their many handicaps. 
With ihe major emphas's of 
this urogram focused on 
primary and elementary 
grades it is our purpose to 
adapt the curriculum in or- 
der to place major emphasis 
on the language arts and 
arithmetic programs. It is 
our purpose to involve par- 
ents as much as possible in 
this urogram so that they, 
too, may help to raise the 
sights of their children to 
the highest possible goals. 

Junioi Grade I classes 
have b-'on organized in these 
twelve districts as a half- 
way step between kinder- 
garten and Grade I to meet 
the needs of little children 
in each district who are not 
social! v. emotionally, or in- 
tellectually ready for 
Grade I. 

Junior Grade IV classes, 
known as Operation Recap, 
are a half-way step between 
Grades III and IV for chil- 
dren who have repeated one 
year of the first three and 
who are still underachieving 
in reading. 

The twelve Counterpoise 
districts, it must be noted, 
are steadily moving toward 
the ungraded school organ- 
ization which will provide 
for individual needs lo an 
even greater degree Fur- 
thermore. Counterpoise fea- 
tures team teaching as its 
basic method of instruction. 
As a result of these two 
changes in the organization- 
al patterns of the schools 
involvea it is now possible 
for our teachers in thesp 
twelve districts to make a 
more immediate and posi- 
tive attack on the special 
needs of individual pupils. 

Principals and teachers of 
these districts have long 
been well aware of the in- 
lUt.gble fact that chil- 
dren oi all races, creeds, 
and ethnic orig'ns should 
know and respect each oth- 
er. Consequently, they have 



arranged cross-district pro- 
grams which include class- 
room interchanges and as- 
semblies, with districts in 
more socio-economically ad- 
vantaged areas of the city. 
In 1965 1966, this phase of 
Counterpoise will be ex- 
panded to the mutual bene- 
fit of all children, Negro 
and white, who participate 
in these exchanges. I trust 
that funds can be provided 
in the tuture to underwrite 
the transportation costs 
which tr.is year have been 
met by parents and Home 
and School Associations. 

It is hoped that the fed- 
eral Klementarv and Sec- 
ondary School Education 
Act will afford us the means 
not only to complete the 
Counterpoise program to 
meet the needs of the re- 
maining 1,655 pupils in the 
presen f twelve districts, but 
to extend further the pro- 
gram to twelve additional 
districts, thus adding 10,500 
children to the enriched 
schooling this program pro- 
vides. 

The pupil-teacher ratios 
in the Counterpoise schools 
have oeen significantly re- 
duced below the 30-1 ratio 
which is Boston's elemen- 
tary school policy. The pu- 
pil-teacher ratios for May, 
1965, in the Counterpoise 
schools were as follows: 
P. Brooks 23/1 

Dearborn 25/1 

Dillaway 21/1 

Dudley 23/1 

W. E. Endicott 26/1 
C. Gibson 26/1 

Harvard 21/1 

H. L. Higginson 18/1 
J. W. Howe 20/1 

Hyde 18/1 

Norcross 27/1 

J. Winthrop 26/1 

Acute urban problems 
dictate that all of our 
schools should have a high- 
er ratio of teachers to pu- 
pils and in addition many 
other resources. The Willis 
Report calls for a pupil- 
teachor ratio of 25-1 and 
ten "rion-teachme: profes- 
sionals per 1,000 pupils. 
This ideal staffing is our 
goal in Counterpoise dis- 
tricts. Pupil adjustment 
counselors and special teach- 
ers of art and music now 
serve in many but not all 



JUNE 14, 1965

of these districts. With fed- 
era] and state financial as- 
sistance we shall attempt 
to reach the Willis Report 
standards. 

PRE-KINDERGARTEN 
CLASSES 

In cooperation with Ac- 
tion for Boston Community 
Development, Inc., four pre- 
kindergarten classes for 
eighty pupils were opened 
in the Whittiei Street Hous- 
ing Project and the John 
J. Williams School. This is 
compensatory education at 
the grass roots. Children 
from three years and four 
months to four years and 
four months of age are pro- 
vided with a well-planned 
program of cultural and ex- 
perimental opportuni- 
ties which will give them a 
greater chance and more 
hope for success in future 
school years. 

In September, 1965, the 
pre-kindergarten program 
will be expanded from 
four to twenty-four classes. 
Of this type of program, 
Dr. Bruno Bettleman in the 
New York Review of Books, 
September, 1964, writes, 
"Early age experiences 
have greater promise for 
cultural development than 
any other program." 

REMEDIAL READING 
CLASSES 

The Boston Public 
Schools for many years 
have conducted remedial 
reading classes for boys 
and girls above Grade II 
whose reading ability fell 
below their potential. More 
than 2400 pupils benefited 
from participation in the 
classes in all 56 elementary 
districts during the cur- 
rent school year. 
After-School Programs 

From 2:30 to 3:30 p. m., 
four days a week, after- 
school remedial classes in 
reading and mathematics 
were held in the Ellis 
Mendell, Harvard and John 
Winthrop Districts. 

Intensive remedial work 
was done in reading or 
mathematics in laborato- 
ries where wide use 
of audio-visual and pro- 
grammed materials fea- 
tured new techniques to 
help children in these 
areas. Attendance was vol- 



untary for the 270 children 
in the eighteen classes. 
Operation Second Chance 
This program, designed 
to make formal education 
more meaningful for boys 
who have failed twice in 
the first six grades and 
who are potential drop- 
outs, was conducted on an 
experimental bas's in 1963- 

1964. The success of the 
program prompted expan- 
sion into four additional 
junior high schools in 1964- 

1965. The great effective- 
ness of this program is 
demonstrated by the almost 
perfect attendance record 
of the pupils and by the 
development of the strong 
motivation for scholastic 
achievement so necessary 
to success. 
ELEMENTARY SUMMER 

SCHOOLS 
Intensive remedial work 
in Grade IV, V, and VI 
reading and mathematics is 
planned for the following 
districts this summer: 
William L. Garrison 
Christopher Gibson 
Julia Ward Howe 
Rice-Franklin 
In addition, enrichment 
classes in art, history, geog- 
raphy, and science are 
planned. A Great Books Dis- 
cussion Club for the very 
ablest Grade IV, V, and VI 
pupils will be an added fea- 
ture. Attendance in these 
classes is voluntary. Classes 
will be drawn across district 
lines and will include paro- 
chial school pupils. Indeed, 
several parents from Brigh- 
ton, Jamaica Plain, and 
West Roxbury have ex- 
pressed an interest in en- 
rolling their children in this 
summer program which will 
serve 1,440 pupils. 
SUMMER REVIEW READ- 
ING LABORATORIES 
Since 1963, Summer Re- 
view Reading Laboratories 
have been carrying on in- 
tensive remedial work fea- 
turing the use of pro- 
grammed materials and au- 
dio-visual aids, on both a 
group and an individual 
basis, for the improvement 
of word analysis skills, word 
recognition, speed, and com- 
prehension. Attendance at 
these laboratories, staffed 
b y elementary remedial 
reading teachers, is volun- 



172 



JUNE 14, 1965 



tary. Six junior high school 
and six high school classes 
were maintained in 1964 
with excellent results for 
360 students. 

SUMMER ENRICHMENT 
PROGRAMS 
The elementary and jun- 
ior high schools have coop- 
erated closely with Belmont 
Hill Milton Academy, and 
Shady Hill in offering a 
Summer Enrichment Pro- 
gram for selected students 
from various Boston dis- 
tricts. Boston and private 
school teachers staffed 
these programs. 

OPERATION HEAD 

START 
With the federal financial 
assistance provided by -he 
Economic Opportunity Act 
of 1964 (Anti-Poverty Bill), 
and in cooperation with Ac- 
tion for Boston Community 
Development (ABCD), six- 
ty elementary schools will 
be ononod during the sum- 
mer ' of 1965 to provide 
readiness classes for chil- 
dren scheduled to attend 
kin-ler^arten in September. 

ACTION FOR BOSTON 
COMMUNITY DEVELOP- 
MENT, INC.,- EXPERI- 
MENTAL PROGRAM 
Several pilot programs 
in cooperation with ABCD 
and the Ford Foundation 
were begun in Septem- 
ber, 1963. In addition 
to the four pre-kindergar- 
ten classes, ten develop- 
mental reading programs in 
four elementary and three 
junior high schools were or- 
ganized. Four pupil adjust- 
ment counselor and four 
guidance adviser programs 
were also introduced. These 
programs have continued 
for the past two school 
years. Following another 
year of study, it is antici- 
pated that research now 
being carried on by ABCD 
will establish new guide 
lines for the reading, ad- 
justment counselor, guid- 
ance, and pre-kindergarten 
programs on the elemen- 
tary and junior high school 
levels. 

NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH 
CORPS IN-SCHOOL 
PROGRAM 
Boston was the first 
large city in the Common- 
wealth and the fourth city 
in the entire nation to re- 



ceive a federal grant for 
a Neighborhood Youth 
Corps Program. The grant 
of $430,000 provides in- 
school work-training oppor- 
tunities for 1,200 Boston 
Public and 300 Catholic 
high school students. This 
program, developed jointly 
by Action for Boston Com- 
munity Dvelopment (ABCD) 
and the Boston Public 
Schools, provides a vehicle 
which enables hundreds of 
deserving boys and girls 
from lowincome families to 
complete or resume their 
education. The success of 
this program is evidenced 
by the receipt of an addi- 
tional grant in the amount 
of $536,722 to provide for 
similar employment during 
the coming summer months. 
As described above, this 
comprehensive attack on the 
deprivation suffered by 
many of our pupils should 
go far in raising their as- 
pirational levels and achieve- 
ment so that these chil- 
dren may benefit from the 
opportunities the future 
holds for them. 

OPEN ENROLLMENT 
That children of all races, 
creeds, and national origins 
should learn, know, and re- 
spect each other cannot be 
disputed. Consequently, the 
voluntary transfer of chil- 
dren through open enroll- 
ment permits any parent, 
white or Negro, to transfer 
his children at his own ex- 
pense to any school where 
there are available seats — 
on a first come first served 
basis — with the parents be- 
ing held responsible for 
their children's regular at- 
tendance and acceptable be- 
havior. This privilege, which 
parents frequently exercise, 
(the Boston Public Schools 
have over 7.500 such volun- 
tary transfers) affords them 
an opportunity to choose be- 
tween the specialized pro- 
gram of the core city schools 
and the standard program 
of the schools in the more 
economically favored neigh- 
borhoods Unfortunately, in 
manv cases. oo p n enrollment 
places a financial burden on 
thnse least rble to bear it.

CURRICULUM DEVELOP- 
MENT AND IMPROVE- 
MENT OF INSTRUCTION 

The late President Ken- 
nedy prodded the nation's 
consciousness into an in- 
creased awareness of the 
problems peculiar to urban 
education and the special 
needs of disadvantaged 
children in our great cities. 
Action in this area has been 
both initiated and intensi- 
fied by governmental and 
private funding agencies, by 
the colleges and universities, 
and by various community 
agencies. The goal, on a 
national scale, is the devel- 
opment of programs for 
the improvement of urban 
education and the training 
of teachers whose special 
skills and qualifications 
will implement such pro- 
grams. 

In the area of coopera- 
tion with institutions of 
higher learning, Boston is 
at the forefront in tapping 
the educational resources 
of Greater Boston's colleges 
and universities. Coopera- 
tion with the various gov- 
ernmental and private -fund- 
ing agencies has also been 
energetically pursued and 
has been eminently re- 
warding. 

A brief description of the 
many programs initiated in 
this field will show how far 
the Boston Public Schools 
have gone in actively seek- 
ing out and cooperating 
closely with the various in- 
tellectual resources avail- 
able in order to secure the 
best possible education for 
all the pupils of this great 
city. 

REGULAR STUDENT 

TEACHER TRAINING 

During the school year 
1964-1965, teachers of the 
Boston Public Schools 
helped to train 649 student 
teachers and observers from 
twenty-four different col- 
leges. These student teach- 
ers and observers served 
and were trained in fifteen 
high schools, sixteen junior 
high schools, and 54 elemen- 
tary districts. 

In contrast to this total 
of 649 student teachers and 
observers from the twenty- 
four different colleges, there 
were but 250 student teach- 
ers from fourteen colleges 



in the year 1962-1963. In 
the short span of two years, 
there has been an increase 
of 399 in the number of 
young men and women be- 
ing trained in the Boston 
Public Schools. 
INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 

In September, 1964, Bos- 
ton initiated a three-year 
internship program of pre- 
service and in-service train- 
ing designed to prepare 
young men and young wom- 
en to teach in the disad- 
vantaged areas of Boston. 
The cooperating colleges 
are: Boston College, Boston 
University, Harvard Univer- 
sity, and State College at 
Boston. This program was 
made possible by the finan- 
cial assistance of the Per- 
manent Charity Fund, Inc., 
of Boston. These interns 
seek to develop and prac- 
tice new teaching methods 
which will promote greater 
motivation, inspire students 
to raise their aspirational 
levels, and draw or lead 
the disadvantaged student 
out of his shell to face the 
future with greater confi- 
dence. 

Still another internship 
team has been organized by 
the Boston Public Schools 
in cooperation with North- 
eastern University. Fi- 
nanced by The Fund lor the 
Advancement of Education 
(Ford Foundation), the 
grant provides for a four- 
year training program to 
improve the reading and 
language skills of secondary 
school students to the end 
that more and more will 
qualify for admission to 
college. 

These interns by actual 
experience in classrooms 
where underprivileged chil- 
dren attend school learn 
how to communicate with 
these boys and girls and 
their parents. By a sympa- 
thetic understanding of the 
children's problem, the 
teachers gain the confi- 
dence and respect of the pu- 
pils, and, as a result, build 
up in these baffled, and 
often angry, underprivi- 
leged students a desire for 
knowledge and a hope for 
the future. No more impor- 
tant work waits to be done, 
and the willing candidates 
to advance that work are 
still in short supply.

OTHER COLLEGE-UNI- 
VERSITY INVOLVEMENTS 

In September, 1964, the 
School Committee of the 
City of Boston approved the 
participation by the Boston 
Public Schools in the pro- 
gram of the Center for Re- 
search and Development in 
Education of the Harvard 
Graduate School of Educa- 
tion. The Center will inves- 
tigate the causes for the 
various differences in indi- 
viduals, attempt to develop 
means so that schools can 
be more responsive to these 
differences, and to trans- 
late quickly the knowl- 
edge and means into educa- 
tional policy and practice. 
The Harvard-Boston Sum- 
mer School, an outgrowth 
of Boston's cooperation with 
the Center, is explained in 
detail in Part IV of this re- 
port. 

The Boston Public 
Schools and Tufts Univer- 
sity have arranged for a 
summer in-service course, 
"Tea c h i n g Disadvantaged 
Youth in Urban Communi- 
ties," to be conducted in 
part at the Mary E. Curley 
Junior High School. This 
course is sponsored by the 
National Defense Education 
Act and preference will be 
given to teaching-supervis- 
ing teams representing 
schools in disadvantaged 
neighborhoods. 

Boston looks with pride 
upon its working partner- 
ship with the universities 
mentioned above in the 
joint search for solutions to 
educational problems that 
plague the larger cities of 
America, particularly as 
they concern the disadvan- 
taged children of our land. 
IN-SERVICE COURSES 

In September, 1963, many 
Boston teachers, guidance 
counselors, and administra- 
tors took part in a fifteen- 
lecture course titled "Edu- 
cation and Race Relations" 
at State College at Boston, 
and sponsored by the 
Massachusetts Department 
of Education. 

In keeping with this felt 
need for greater teacher 
understanding of the spe- 
cial problems of disadvan- 
taged children, I authorized 
an in-service course begin- 
ning in January, 1964, titled 



"Education in Disadvan- 
taged Urban Areas." Over 
700 Boston teachers from 
schools in the South End, 
Roxbury, and North Dor- 
chester having concentra- 
tions of disadvantaged chil- 
dren attended this series of 
lectures. To disseminate 
further the valuable infor- 
mation available in this 
course, the lectures were 
taped and printed and one 
thousand copies were dis- 
tributed. Part II of this 
same course was given dur- 
ing the current school 
year. Copies of this series 
of lectures are being print- 
ed for distribution in Sep- 
tember this year. 

In these in-service cours- 
es the lectures on psychol- 
ogy, sociology, political sci- 
ence, economics, anthropol- 
ogy, and research and de- 
velopment, as they are re- 
lated to the overall prob- 
lem of teaching in disad- 
vantaged urban areas, were 
delivered by nationally 
prominent men and women. 
MULTI-ETHNIC TEXT- 
BOOKS 

Boston, with the other 
member cities of the Fif- 
teen Great Cities of Amer- 
ica (the Research Council 
of the Great Cities Program 
for School Improvement ) , 
has shown prime concern 
about the necessity for hav- 
ing textbooks and educa- 
tional materials which equi- 
tably portray minority 
groups in a multi-racial so- 
ciety. Certainly, books 
which do not do justice to 
the contributions of the Ne- 
gro or other minority 
groups to our culture should 
not be purchased for use 
in the Boston Public 
Schools. 

For this reason, a group 
of interested citizens was 
invited to work with the 
school administration for 
the purpose of making rec- 
ommendations and sugges- 
tions in this area. The ad- 
vice and help which this 
group provided was a real 
service. Their recommenda- 
tions were passed on to our 
own working textbook and 
educational materials com- 
mittees for final avalua- 
tion. Definite progress has 
been made in this important 
matter of selecting, buying, 



JUNE 14, 1965

and using multi-ethnic ed- 
ucational textbooks and 
materials in our various 
programs of study. 
OFFICE OF PROGRAM 
DEVELOPMENT 
The Office of Program 
Development was created 
by the School Committee ot 
the City of Boston in March, 
1965. This new arm of the 
school system works closely 
with Action for Boston 
Community Development, 
Inc., the Graduate School of 
Education of Harvard Uni- 
versity, and other local col- 
lege and community groups. 
At the present time, the 
Offxe of Program Devel- 
opment is concerned with 
three main areas: 

1. The development of 
both long-range and 
short-range plans for 
the continued improve- 
ment of education in the 
Boston Public Schools. 

2. The planning of a 
new high school complex 
to replace the present 
English High School. Ed- 
ucational Facilities Lab- 
oratories has already 
granted funds for its pre- 
liminary planning and de- 
sign. 

3. The coordination of 
outside support for con- 
tinued improvement of 
the school system. 

The major source of funds 
for this entire program is 
expected to be provided by 
federal and state legisla- 
tion as well as financial 
tion as well as ffinancial 
support from private foun- 
dations. 

My recommendations for 
the further utilization of 
the Office of Program De- 
velopment are found in 
Part IV of this report. 

PART IV 
SPECIFIC RECOMMEN- 
DATIONS FOR IMME- 
DIATE ACTION 

I recognize that the so- 
cial problem of reducing the 
effects of ghetto housing 
patterns and the education- 
al handicaps produced by 
such patterns has no single 
or simple solution. Further- 
more, no long-range solu- 
tions are possible unless 
there is concerted action on 
many fronts by many agen- 
cies in addition to the 
schools. 



In preparing a broad plan 
designed tor the immediate 
and long-range solutions of 
the many educational prob- 
lems facing the schools 
and the Negro community, 
I am recommending action 
in the following three dis- 
tinct but clearly connected 
areas : 

A. The expansion of in- 
terracial learning experi- 
ences 

B. The extension and ex- 
pansion of compensatory 
and enrichment programs 
for disadvantaged children 

C. The intensification of 
urban teacher training and 
experimentation 

Each of three areas in 
which I recommend action 
deserves all the energy, at- 
tention, and resources that 
the City of Boston can 
muster. 

STEPS TO PROMOTE 
INTERRACIAL LEARN- 

ING EXPERIENCES 
Adoption of a City-Wide 

Policy of 5-3-4 Grade 
Organization 

As quickly as new build- 
ings and existing facilities 
parmit, I propose to move 
the Boston Public Schools 
toward an organization of 
elementary schools, Grades 
I through V; of middle 
schools, Grades VI through 
VIII; and of four year high 
schools. This organization 
would greatly reduce the 
possibility that children in 
disadvantaged areas would 
remain in their neighbor- 
hood schools beyond grade 
five. Upon the completion 
of Grade V, pupils would 
automatically move into 
larger, more comprehen- 
sive, and more racially bal- 
anced middle schools. This 
will require a substantial 
reorganization of the exist- 
ing pattern in Boston schools 
so that the newly-created 
middle schools will draw at 
an earlier stage on wider 
geographic and ethnic 
groups, thus making a sub- 
stantia] contribution to the 
racial balance of the system 
as a whole. 

Massive School 
Construction Program 

My recognition of the 
urgent need for a city-wide 
massive crash program of 
school construction is shown 
by my repeated proposals 



176 



JUNE 14, 1965 



and recommendations on 
this matter. I am well 
aware of how new school 
buildings will provide facil- 
ities to use newer educa- 
tional techniques. For rea- 
sons beyond my control the 
construction of new schools 
has not kept pace with the 
city's pressing need. 

In order to launch any 
building program, an im- 
mediate meeting of the 
agencies that can make a 
contribution to the problem 
of getting new schools built 
in the City of Boston is 
mandatory. To this meeting, 
in cooperation with the 
School Committee, I plan 
to invite representatives of 
the Mayor's Office, the De- 
partment of School Build- 
ings, the Boston Redevelop- 
ment Authority, and the 
Boston Finance Commis- 
sion for preliminary dis- 
cussions. At this meeting we 
would try to determine how 
best to reduce the enor- 
m o u s and unnecessary 
amount of time now needed 
to get new construction 
underway. 

Present conditions now 
compel me to revise my 
proposed city-wide school 
construction program so 
that many new elementary 
and middle schools may re- 
ceive priority. These new 
schools will be much larger 
than existing schools and 
will thus draw, wherever 
feasible, upon a much wider 
and more racially balanced 
population. 

I intend to explore such 
new ideas of industrialized 
construction as will provide 
functional and flexible ed- 
ucational facilities as well 
as rapid construction. As 
examples of new and larger 
schools to be built in fringe 
areas, I propose the im- 
mediate building of the 
following schools: 

1. The replacement of 
the Florence Nightingale 
School with a 900-pupil 
K-5 school in the John 
Marshall District in Dor- 
chester. This school would 
draw students from the 
Sarah Greenwood School 
and the present Nightin- 
gale School. This will both 
relieve the overcrowing at 
the Greenwood School and 



create a new, larger, and 
more racially balanced 
school in that area. 

2. A new 1,000-pupil K-5 
school in the vicinity of Bow- 
doin Street and Geneva 
Avenue in Dorchester to 
replace the Christopher 
Gibson and the Atherton 
Schools. This new school 
would not only relieve the 
overcrowding ir. the John 
Marshal] School, but would 
create a better racial bal- 
ance in that whole area. 
These two schools would 
greatly relieve the over- 
crowding in the Endicott 
District. 

3. A 600-pupil K-5 replace- 
ment for the Margaret Ful- 
ler School, to be located in 
the vicinity of the Corn- 
wall Street Playground in 
Jamaica Plain. This would 
draw children from the 
Egleston Square area, thus 
creating a better racial 
balance in this section of 
the city. 

4. A 700-pupil K-5 re- 
placement for the Abby 
May School, to be located 
in the Connolly Playground- 
Notre Dame Academy area 
of Roxbury. This will be 
designed in large measure 
to provide school facilities 
for the Academy Homes 
development, which we are 
assured by the Boston Re- 
development Authority will 
be an integrated housing 
development, thus insuring 
a racially balanced school. 

I cannot guarantee in 
every case that a new 
school will be built in an 
area that will automatically 
insure an improvement in 
racial balance. For instance, 
it would be difficult, if not 
impossible, to organize re- 
placements for the recently 
destroyed Everett and Hyde 
Schools that would signif- 
icantly alter the racial bal- 
ance in this area. In every 
case, however, where such 
larger schools in fringe 
areas are possible, I intend 
to build them to assure bet- 
ter racial balance. 

Reorganization and 

Expansion of Open 

Enrollment 

I propose that the pres- 
ent policy of open enroll- 
ment be reorganized and 
expanded in the following 
ways: 



JUNE 14, 1965 



177 



1. Establish a permanent 
central administrative com- 
mittee composed of central 
administrative personnel 
and principals to facilitate 
the implementation of this 
policy 

2. Make available to the 
schools, press, and other 
media of communication, in- 
formation on seats available 
in all grades and all schools 
throughout the city 

3. Provide free car checks 
for all primary and elemen- 
tary pupils who attend a 
school more than 1% miles 
from their homes. The imp- 
lementation of this recom- 
mendation is contingent 
upon the receipt of funds 
from sources other than 
our current budget 

4. Review our open en- 
rollment policy periodically. 

THE ESTABLISHMENT 

OF A CITIZEN 
ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
The primary pupose of the 
Citizen Advirory Committe 
will be to keep open lines 
of communication between 
the school administration 
and responsible community 
leaders. It will provide a 
form for the free and open 
discussion of all matters of 
mutual concern. Obviously, 
it is not my part to make 
suggestions regarding mem- 
bership in this committee 
save to recommend that it 
be functional in size and 
trulv representative of the 
parents whose children it 
would serve. By means of 
this committee and the com- 
munity involvement it con- 
notes, I would hope to re- 
ceive valuable assistance in 
mobilizing all of Boston's 
resources for the advance- 
ment of the Boston Public 
Schools. 

Adoption of Multi-ethnic 
Textbooks 
In order to insure that all 
Boston school children ob- 
tain a clear and realistic 
view of life in the large 
urban centers of this coun- 
try, as well as an accurate 
view of American history 
and culture, I propose that 
the school system continue 
as rapidly as possible to ex- 
pand its program of adop- 
ting those textbooks that 
portray accurately the role 
of minority groups, esecially 
the Negroes. I feel that 



there is still a lack of such 
books of sufficient quality 
and quantity, but I intend 
to continue my concerted 
efforts to obtain such books 
for our schools. 
Expansion of the Current 
Program of Common 
Learning Experiences 
In order to promote the 
interaction of ethnic groups, 
I propose to expa-.d the cur- 
rent program of shared 
learning experiences pres- 
ently carried on in elemen- 
tary grades by: 

1. A stepped-up program 
of exchange school visits at 
all levels. This program will 
comprise exchanges with 
suburban schools as well as 
exchanges within the Boston 
Public Schools. 

2. Increased visits among 
schools for special assembly 
programs during Negro His- 
tory Week and at other ap- 
propriate times 

3. An expanded program 
of shared field trips followed 
by shared reports of the par- 
ticipating students 

Wide expansion of this 

piogram would necessitate 

funds which are presently 

not available in our budget. 

COMPENSATORY AND 

ENRICHMENT 

PROGRAMS FOR 

DISADVANTAGED 

CHILDREN 

Expansion of Current 

Programs in Elementary 

Schools 

My recommendations for 
the expansion of the com- 
pensatory and enrichment 
programs that we are cur- 
rently offering in the dis- 
advantaged areas of Boston, 
especially the South End, 
Roxbury, and No^th Dor- 
chester, follow: 
Pre-kindergarten 

Pre-kindergarten classes 
to be opened in the follow- 
ing new districts in Septem- 
ber, 1965: 

Phillips Brooks, John F. 
Kennedy, Paul A. Dever, 
Theodore Lyman, Dillaway, 
Martin Dwight, Norcross, 
Julia Ward Howe, Warren 
Operation Head Start 

Operation Head Start 
classes are being initiated 
this summer in sixty elemen- 
tary schools. I fully expect 
that an evaluation will just- 
ify their expansion in the 
near future. 



178 



JUNE 14, 1965 



Operation Counterpoise 

I intend to complete the 
institution of Operation 
Counterpoise in the 12 dis- 
advantaged school districts 
in which it is currently op- 
erating and to extend the 
program, as soon as funds 
become available, to the fol- 
lowing 12 school districts: 

John A. Andrew, Theo- 
dore Lyman, Bigelow, Mar- 
tiin, Paul A. Dever, Ellis 
Mendell, Dwight, Hugh 
O'Brien, Jefferson, Rice- 
Franklin, Abraham Lincoln- 
Quincy, Warren 

It is also my intention to 
provide the following special 
services in the schools of the 
Counterpoise districts: 

One full-time pupil adjust- 
ment counselor for each 500 
pupils 

One resource teacher to 
coordinate audio-visual pro- 
grams and the use of multi- 
sensory equipment 

One special speech thera- 
pist 

One special art teacher 

One special music teacher 

One part-time psychiatric 
social worker 

One full-time research as- 
sistant for individual intel- 
ligence and ■ achievement 
testing 

One full-time school-com- 
munity agent to organize 
after-school programs for 
children and adults 

One full-time m'rse for 
each district 

One full-time attendance 
officer 

By this extension of Oper- 
ation Counterpoise, most of 
Boston's disadvantaged chil- 
dren would enjoy the bene- 
fits of smaller class sizes, 
master teachers, additional 
counseling services, team 
teaching, and enriched read- 
ing programs. I fully expect 
that federal funds will make 
this expansion a reality in 
the near future. 
A f t e r-School Enrichment 
and Remediation 

It is my intention to ex- 
pand the After-School En- 
richment and Remediation 
Classes, and the special 
summer schools designed to 
broaden and deepen educa- 
tional experiences for dis- 
advantaged childrer. Funds 
for these programs are avail- 
able from the Office of Eco- 
nomic Opportunity, and 



hopefully, in the near future, 
from the new federal Ele- 
mentary and Secondary Ed- 
ucation Act. These funds 
will be used to extend After- 
School Enrichment and Re- 
mediation Classes to the fol- 
lowing nine : -hools: 

Harvard, Charleston; 
Hart-Gaston-Perry, South 
Boston; Jefferson, Jamaica 
Plain; Theodore Lyman, 
East Boston; Abraham Lin- 
coln, City Proper; Martin, 
Roxbury; Ellis Mendell, Ja- 
maica Plain; Hugh O'Brien, 
Roxbury; John Winthrop, 
Roxbury 

These nine schools will 
draw children from the en- 
rollment of their districts 
and from neighboring paro- 
chial schools wherever pos- 
sible, thus being sure that 
the children with the great- 
est need will participate in 
the program. Approximately 
1,500 children will be served 
by the program — all to be 
drawn from 1 o w-income 
families. 

I recommend that Opera- 
tion Second Chance, exclu- 
sively for boys, now in 
effect in the Joseph H. 
Barnes, Patrick T. Camp- 
bell, Clarence R. Edwards, 
and Donald McKay Scools, 
be extended to the Lewis 
and James P. Timilty 
Schools, and that similar 
classes for girls be organ- 
ized. 

Extension and Initiation of 

Compensatory Programs in 

Junior High Schools 

I propose a compensatory 
and enrichment program for 
junior high schools in dis- 
advantaged areas that would 
extend to this level many 
of the programs, such as 
Counterpoise, now operating 
in our elementary schools. 

It is my intention to re- 
organize the administration 
of the Patrick T. Campbell, 
Oliver Wendell Holmes, 
Lewis, and James P. Timilty 
Junior High Schools. The 
teaching load of the Assist- 
ant Principals in these 
schools should be substan- 
tially reduced in order that 
they may devote more time 
to administrative and super- 
visory duties. 

For each of these four 
junior high schools, I further 
recommend : 



JUNE 14, 1965 



179 



1. A guidance adviser for 
each grade to remain with 
that grade until graduation, 
thus gaining a personal 
knowledge of each pupil 
through this three-year as- 
sociation 

2. A reading specialist to 
coordinate the reading pro- 
gram and to give in-service 
training in the skills of read- 
ing to the other members of 
the faculty, since every 
teacher, regardless of sub- 
ject area, must be a teach- 
er of reading. 

3. A remedial reading 
teacher to give individual 
or small group remedial 
work 

4. Remedial work in math- 
ematics to be supplied by 
a teacher or teachers whose 
class teaching load will be 
reduced to provide time for 
such remediation 

5. The assignment of a 
full-time school nurse 

6. The appointment of a 
full-time pupil adjustment 
counselor 

7. The appointment of a 
full-time attendance super- 
visor 

8. Reduction of class sizes 
to 25 as a desired goal, but 
in no case more than 30 

9. The appo'ntment of a 
home visitor to provide con- 
stant home-school liaison 

10. The establishment of 
"transition" classes empha- 
sizing reading and mathe- 
matics for those incoming 
students deemed not quite 
ready for the regular school 
hours, to provide for adult 
educational and recreational 
activities 

11. A close working re- 
lationship ' "'tween these 
schcols and local university 
schools of education in the 
training of student teachers 
and interns 

High School Innovations 

SECONDARY 

EDUCATION 
COMPLEX 
I have already proposed 
the establishment of a new 
secondary education com- 
plex which will contain 
many novel and experimen- 
tal programs aimed at im- 
proving and expanding op- 
portunities for disadvant- 
aged secondary school youth. 
For example, the proposed 
non-graded approach will 
enable many students, who, 



as freshmen do not think 
of themselves as college 
bound, to reevaluate their 
capabilities and then pre- 
pare for college entrance. 

In this new educational 
complex I plan to institute 
w o r k-study programs in 
data processing and office 
education. 

JRLS' HIGH SCHOOL 

Girls' High School was 
originally established as the 
countpart of English High 
School just as Girls' Latin 
School was established as 
the counterpart of Boston 
Latin School Organized as 
a comprehensive high school 
in an in-town location more 
than a centuiv ago, it has 
become, in reality, because 
of its relocation, a district 
school in the Roxbury area. 

I propose to ma'.e the fol- 
lowing changes in the cur- 
riculum of Girls' High 
School: 
BUSINESS EDUCATION 

Two years of typewriting 
and one year of office prac- 
tice will be required here- 
after of Business Education 
students to provide them 
with increased salable skills. 
To meet further the de- 
mands of an expanding job 
market, each girl will be re- 
quired to take three busi- 
ness subjects in her junior 
and senior years. In addi- 
tion, a key punch course is 
planned which will better 
prepare students for em- 
ployment in business firms 
now using automated equip- 
ment extensively. 

Specialized Courses 

I will establish new spe- 
cialized courses at Girls' 
High School in laboratory 
techniques, commercial 
sketching and designing, 
business correspondence, 
typewriting, and operation 
of business machines. 
Classes will be small and 
ungraded, and will supple- 
ment regular classes in Eng- 
lish and social studies. 

A guidance counselor 
should be appointed to work 
exclusively with the girls 
entering Grades IX and X. 
Her primary responsibility 
would be to familiarize her- 
self with the background 
and needs of the pupils. The 
counselor would work close- 
ly with the administrators 
of the school to promote 



180 



JUNE 14, 1965 



specialized unit courses, for 
which she sees a need. 

At the end of two years, 
pupils in this program will 
have the option of taking 
the regular business course 
or continuing in these spe- 
cialized programs. 

Distributive Education 

To increase job oppor- 
tunities for seniors at Girls' 
High School, a cooperative 
course in Distributive Edu- 
cation will be introduced. 
From this course girls will 
be assigned related jobs in 
the prominent retail stores 
in the city. This supple- 
mental work will enrich and 
dramatically emphasize 
classroom techniques. The 
resultant remuneration will 
be most helpful to low- 
income families in less fa- 
vored sections. Successful 
completion of the course and 
of the related work-experi- 
ence should be most helpful 
in obtaining desirable em- 
ployment. 

Boston-Northeastern 
University Project 

We have had the valuable 
experience of the joint Bos- 
ton-Northeastern University 
Project at the Jeremiah E. 
Burke High School during 
the school year 1964-1965. 
This program will be in op- 
eration next year at Girls' 
High School as well as at 
Brighton High School and 
Jamaica Plain High School. 
Under this plan interns 
from Northeastern Univer- 
sity School of Education 
work with poorly motivated 
tenth and eleventh grade 
pupils to improve their 
reading and language skills. 
General 

1. The encouragement of 
local colleges and universi- 
ties and other schools of 
higher learning to work 
more closely with our guid- 
ance counselors and with 
students early in their high 
school careers so that great- 
er numbers with college po- 
tential will be motivated to 
pursue higher education. 

2. The establishment of a 
committee of guidance coun- 
selors to prepare and dis- 
tribute to high school stu- 
dents and their parents a 
pamphlet explaining general 
college entrance require- 
ments and the availability 
of low-interest government 



loans, scholarships, and 
other financial assistance 
for higher education. 

3. The provision of coun- 
seling services based on stu- 
dent-needs rather than on a 
fixed counselor-student ra- 
tio 

4. The direction of great- 
er numbers of vocational 
students into postgraduate 
courses available at both the 
Boston Vocational Technical 
Institute and at private vo- 
cational schools 

5. The development of a 
close liaison between the 
higL school counselors and 
the Massachusetts Division 
of Employment Security to 
obtain information concern- 
ing student qualifications 
and job opportunities 

URBAN TEACHER 

TRAINING AND 

EXPERIMENTAL 

EDUCATIONAL 

PROGRAMS 

Increased and Expanded 

Urban Teacher Training 
Programs 

The need for larger num- 
bers of highly-trained teach- 
ers and, in particular, for 
teachers intensivly and spe- 
cially trained to teach in 
urban disadvantaged areas, 
is one of which I am already 
fully aware and about which 
a great deal is being done. 
In Part III of this report, I 
outlined our current pro- 
gram in this area. I propose 
to expand this program and 
establish many new projects 
in urban teacher training. 

Our present program of 
training student teachers 
from colleges and universi- 
ties in Greater Boston will 
be expanded to include 
trainees from teacher-train- 
ing institutions throughout 
the United States. 

An increased number of 
interns from Boston College, 
Boston University. Harvard,

ment on Educational Dif- 
ferences will sponsor a

Jamaica Plain, as its first 
cooperative project with 
the Boston Public Schools. 
The Harvard-Boston Sum- 
mer Program in Urban 
Education will be in opera- 
tion from June 29 through 
August 13, 1965. In offers 
a six-week enrichment ex- 
perience for 330 Boston 
elementary school pupils, 
and an intensive seven- 
week clinical training pro- 
gram tor 90 experienced 
teachers, supervisors, prin- 
cipals : guidance counselors, 
and graduate students from 
all pans-, of the country. In- 
cluded in this number are 
32 members of the profes- 
sional staff of the Boston 
Public Schools. This pro- 
gram constitutes the first 
step toward the establish- 
ment by the Center of per- 
manent training and clinical 
facilities within the Boston 
Public Schools. 

EXPERIMENTAL 

DEMONSTRATION 

PROGRAMS 

In my opinion, the hope for 
all disadvantaged Boston 
children, Negro or white, 
lies in the active and sus- 
tained pursuit of the new 
and oetter education that 
can come only from experi- 
mentation and the develop- 
ment of model educational 
programs. 

OFFICE OF PUBLIC 
DEVELOPMENT 

The Boston Public Schools 
have now embarked upon a 
long-range program of edu- 
cational innovation through 
the newly-created Office 
of Program Development 
working in coperation with 
colleges and universities in 
Greater Boston, and with 
education research and de- 
velopment organizations. 
MODEL 
DEMONSTRATION 

SCHOOL SUB-SYSTEM 

The primary vehicle for 
innovation is the Model 
Demonstration School Sub- 
system which is being 
planned by the Office of 
Program Development. The 
Sub-system, to be located in 
Roxbury or North Dorches- 
ter, will work toward the 
creation of pre-school ele- 
mentary school, and middle 
school programs which will 
serve as demonstration mod- 
els of the best and most ad- 



vanced techniques available 
anywhere in the country. As 
quickly as such new pro- 
grams prove their worth, 
they will be extended to 
other schools in disadvan- 
taged areas and to all other 
Boston Public Schools. Stu- 
dents emerging from this 
Model Sub-system will have 
access to the proposed sec- 
ondary education complex 
which will function as the 
upper portion of the Sub- 
system. Thus, the disadvan- 
taged areas of Boston will 
benefit first from the best 
available educational pro- 
grams. 

NEW HUMBOLDT 
AVENUE SCHOOL 
A fresh approach to school 
planning is the New Hum- 
boldt Avenue School to be 
located in the Washington 
Park area of Roxbury. The 
school administration has 
been working for the past 
year in conjunction with 
both professional and com- 
munity committees in the 
planning of both the physi- 
cal facilities and the educa- 
tional program for the new 
building. The staff of the 
school is to be selected and 
trained prior to the opening 
of the building. It is pro- 
jected that this building will 
be utilized as a teacher 
training institution in co- 
operation with the Boston 
University School of Educa- 
tion. 

OTHER TRAINING 
PROGRAMS 
Other training programs 
are in the planning stages 
in cooperation with such 
Greater Boston institutions 
as Simmons College, Tufts 
University, and Wheelock 
College The Simmons pro- 
gram, tor instance, is aimed 
at training women between 
the ages of 30 and 50 for 
teaching in disadvantaged 
areas. Some of these wom- 
en mav have had previous 
teaching experience, others 
may have had none. They 
will he able to attend the 
training program on a part- 
time hasis and will receive 
instruction in the normal 
areas of content subjects 
and rrtPthodology, as well as 
in urban sociology, cultural 
anthropology, political sci- 
ence, and social psychology.

JUNE 14, 1965 



This program will empha- 
size m-'thods that will con- 
tribute to greater under- 
standing of life in disadvant- 
age areas. 

The recent growth in the 
cooperative working rela- 
tionships between the col- 
leges and universities and 
the Boston Public Schools 
has proved to be of great 
mutual benefit. By the con- 
tinuation and expansion of 
such cooperative projects, I 
look forward to meeting our 
needs for teachers specially 
trained to work in disad- 
vantaged urban areas. 

For the further training 
of our permanent teaching 
staff, I recommend the con- 
tinuation of our in-service 
course, "Education in Disad- 
vantaged Urban Areas." 
This course, given for the 
past two years, has provided 
our teachers with a deeper 
insight into and understand, 
ing of the needs of disad- 
vantaged children. 

CONCLUSION 

I am convinced that my 
recommendations recognize 
the special problems of dis- 
advantaged children and of- 
fer the most effective solu- 
tion that the Boston Public 
Schools can provide. As I 
have previously stated, no 
single agency of society can 
solve all the problems which 
beset the Negro community. 
I reemphasize that the 
larger social problems will 
be eliminated only by the 
united effort of all political, 
civic, social, and religious 
agencies in the Common- 
wealth and not by the 
schools alone. The Boston 
Public Schools will continue 
to assume their share of 
the responsibility and exert 
even greater efforts toward 
achieving true equality and 
dignity for all individuals. 

I must point out, however, 
that the speedy and effec- 
tive implementation of many 
of my recommendations de- 
pends on the acquisition of 
additional funds and the re- 
organization and expansion 
of the administrative staff. 

In many places of this re- 
port, it has been indicated 
that full implementation of 
suggested programs will de- 
pend on the availability of 
funds — particularly from 



federal and state sources. 
At this time, I wish to em- 
phasize, too, that I am not 
leaving the funding aspect 
entirely to chance. The ad- 
ministration is studying dili- 
gently every aspect of fed- 
eral and state educational 
legislation to determine 
what funds are available, 
what educational programs 
fall within the sphere of fed- 
eral and state funding, and 
how to take the fullest ad- 
vantage of these outside 
sources of funds. 

A reorganized and in- 
creased administrative staff 
will be needed to expedite 
recommended programs. The 
administrative reogarization 
plan, presented recently to 
the School Committee, calls 
for six new assistant super- 
intendents ar.d a revamping 
of the duties of the Board of 
Superintendents. This plan 
is one logical step toward 
the total reorganization that 
will be needed. 

With these considerations 
in mind, I earnestly feel that 
my recommendations, pres- 
ented in all sincerity and 
good faith, will make a 
substantial contribution to 
the solution ci the vroblems 
we all hope will be solved 
quickly and equitably. 



A CONCLUDING 
STATEMENT 

Administrators of the 
Boston Public Schools, as 
those of all the other Great 
Cities of the United States, 
are today confronted with 
a critical social revolution 
which is hav'ng a profound 
impact on education in each 
of these Great Cities. The 
problem of racial imbalance 
in the schools of the north- 
ern cities, caused by minority 
concentrations in certain 
neghborhoods, must be dis« 
tinguished from the problem 
of deliberate segregation in 
the South. Too often the 
problem in the North is as- 
sumed to be the same as 
the problem in the South. 

Boston has had no history 
of educational segregation 
within the past century. 
The oldest Negro resident 
can attest to this. Boston, 
today, does have a problem 
of racial imbalance. No one 
will deny this. Education is 
not static. Education must 



JUNE 14, 1965 



183 



adjust. The in-migrant prob- 
lem is Boston's problem, and 
it is the problem of the 
other Great Cities. Boston 
and the other Great Cities 
must solve this problem. 

Boston has solved the 
problem of the immigrant 
to our shores who was hand- 
icapped in his learning be- 
cause of language difficul- 
ties and cultural differences. 
Boston is devoting every ef- 
fort to the problem of the 
native born in-migrant from 
the South who comes to us 
educationally and socially 
unprepared for urban life 
and urban education. 

To compensate for the 
deficiencies which the in- 
migrant is trying to over- 
come, the Boston Public 
Schools have embarked 
upon an intensive and com- 
prehensive program, in con- 
cert with the other Great 
Cities. 

Everyone, now, should be 
familiar with the new edu- 
cational programs which we 
have inaugurated to provide 
the needed compensatory 
education. These programs 
provide for all children who 
in some way or another have 
been unable to take advan- 
tage of the equal educa- 
tional opportunity. 

We who are charged with 
the education of the children 
in the Boston Public Schools 
are in agreement with the 
sociological thesis that a 
completely integrated soci- 
ety is the goal for which we 
all strive. In the meantime, 
I feel that my specific rec- 
ommendations for immedi- 
ate action will provide for 
the needs of all our children 
— disadvantaged and advan- 
taged. I welcome the as- 
sistance of all agencies to 
bring my recommendations 
to fruition.

EDWARD J. WINTER 
Secretary 

Mr. Eisenstadt: I would 
like to take exception in 
public meeting to certain 
clauses in four orders which 
we just passed in confer- 
ence in the salary schedule 
pamphlet. 

Mr. Gartland: Could we 
then accept it subject to 
reservation? 



Mr. O'Connor: Yes. 

Mr. Gartland: And then 
pass on the reservation. 

Mr. Lee: I don't think 
"accepted subject to reser- 
vations" is going to stand 
up legally. I would thinK 
Mr. Eisenstadt after tne 
putting of the main motion 
could amend those passages 
he wants amended and vote 
them up or down. 

Mr. Gartland: I only 
meant to suggest not that 
we let that be the final 
vote but that everything be 
taken en bloc and then each 
of the reservations specifi- 
cally moved and accepted 
or rejected. 

On roll call the foregoing 
schedule of salaries for 
teachers, members of the 
supervising staff and cer- 
tain others for the 1965- 
1966 school year was adopt- 
ed by the following vote: 

YEAS — Messrs. Eisen- 
stadt, Gartland, Lee, O'Con- 
nor and Mrs. Hicks — 5. 

NAYS— 0. 

Chairman: I have to sim- 
ly add that this is not my 
proposed salary schedule. 
Rather I had hoped that 
the Board would accept the 
salary schedule that we had 
presented in our prelimi- 
nary estimates. 

I voted yes in order that 
the teachers may get an 
increase. 

ORDERED, That the sal- 
aries of the Schoolhouse 
Custodian, Assistant School- 
house Custodians, Senior 
and Junior Building Custo- 
dians be increased at the 
rate of $7.00 per week to 
take effect September 1, 
1965. 

On roll call, the order 
passed by the following 
vote: 

YEAS — Messrs. Eisen- 
stadt, Lee and Mrs. Hicks 
—3. 

NAYS— Messrs. Gartland 
and O'Connor— 2. 

Mr. O'Connor: I might 
make the reservation or 
comment on all these votes 
that we just haven't got the 
money to spend and accord- 
ing to my figures we are 
$150,000 under now and we 
haven't got the money to 
spend. 



JUNE 14, 1965 



191 



It is not that I wouldn't 
want them to have it. I 
wanted them to have it, as 
I indicated in the original 
schedule, but it isn't there. 

ORDERED, That the sal- 
aries of the Head Super- 
visor of Attendance and the 
Supervisors of Attendance 
be increased at the rate of 
$480 per year to take effect 
September 1, 1965. 

On roll call, the order 
passed by the following 
vote: 

YEAS — Messrs: Eisen- 
stadt, Lee and Mrs. Hicks 
—3. 

NAYS— Messrs. Gartland 
and O'Connor — 2. 

ORDERED, That the sal- 
aries of all permanent non- 
academic employes, other 
than the Head Supervisor 
of Attendance, Supervisors 
of Attendance, the School- 
house Custodian, Assistant 
Schoolhouse C u s t o d ians, 
Senior and Junior Building 
Custodians and School Phy- 
sicians be increased at the 
rate of $5.00 per week to 
take effect September 1, 
1965. 

On roll call, the order 
passed by the following 
vote: 

YEAS — Messrs. Eisen- 
stadt, Lee and Mrs. Hicks 
—3. 

NAYS — Messrs. Gartland 
and O'Connor — 2. 

Mr. Eisenstadt: Could I 
ask Mr. Winter if he in- 
tends to read the orders 
once again in the back of 
the salary schedule, Order 
2 A, etc.? 

Secretary: They are con- 
sidered part of the salary 
schedule, and I presumed 
they wouldn't have to be 
read. 

Mr. Eisenstadt: Then I 
refrained from taking an 
exception at the wrong 
time. I thought they were 
going to come up again. 

The one I mean reads: 
"... except that effective 
September 1, 1965, any per- 
son receiving biennial rat- 
ings of 3-minus, 4-plus or 4 
shall not receive a salary 
increase or increment un- 
der this salary schedule. 

I would like to strike this 
clause from Orders 2A, 2B, 



2D and E for reasons which 
I amply stated in the con- 
ference minutes. 

ELECTION OF CHAIR- 
MAN PRO TEMPORE 

In the absence of the 
chairman, the Committee 
proceeded to elect a chair- 
man pro tempore. 

On roll call, Mr. O'Connor 
was elected Chairman pro 
tempore by the following 
vote: 

For WILLIAM E. O'CON- 
NOR — Messrs. Eisenstadt, 
Gartland, Lee — 3. 

ABSENT— Mrs. Hicks— 1. 

Mr. O'Connor assumed 
the chair. 

AMENDMENT OF 
MINUTES 

The following was offered: 

ORDERED, That the min- 
utes of the meeting of Apr. 
26, 1965, be amended as 
follows : Under Appoint- 
ments, the salary of Walter 
V. Stranger, cooperative 
instructor, should read 
"$5700." 

On roll call, the order 
passed by the following 
vote: 

YEAS — Messrs. Eisen- 
stadt, Gartland, Lee, and 
O'Connor— 4. 

NAYS— 0. 

ABSENT— Mrs. Hicks— 1. 

The following was offered : 

ORDERED, That the min- 
utes of the meeting of Mar. 
11, 1965, be amended to 
show the temporary trans- 
fer of Anna L. MacMillan. 
to the position of Principal 
Clerk and Stenographer, in- 
stead of the position of

On roll call, the order 
passed by the following 
vote:

nor — 4. 

NAYS— 0.

James A. Garfield District, 
where she remained until 
her retirement. 

Miss Devereaux had a 
long and distinguished ca- 
reer of service in the Boston 
Public Schools. Her love 
and devotion to children 
which she demonstrated 
throughout her career are 
exemplified by this gener- 
ous gift, which shall be 
known henceforth as the 
Mary Dorothea Devereaux 
Fund. 

The School Committee in- 
dicated its gratitude to Miss 
Devereaux for her generosi- 
ty in leaving this fund to 
deserving pupils in the areas 
named.
