Summary

In this article the chairman of an inner-city association of parents criticizes the Detroit board of education for failing to educate inner-city students. He maintains that comparisons of countywide school achievement data and the results of examinations for military service show that inner-city schools do not adequately prepare students for either work or college entrance, and that the preponderance of white teachers and administrators represents a perpetuation of a discriminatory system to exclude qualified negroes. A proposed program for immediate steps includes (1) new placement practices so that adminstrative vacancies, both citywide and in inner-city schools, would be filled by negroes in proportion with the negro school population, (2) new testing machinery for administrative promotion, (3) statewide minimum achievement standards, (4) equal distribution of uncertified personnel, and (5) curriculum changes to offer instruction in negro culture so that the self-image and racial pride of negro students would be enhanced. This article was published in "integrated education," volume 5, number 4, issue 28, August-September 1967. (nh)
