Summary

In December 1968, Teachers College, Columbia University and the Board of Education in Plainfield, New Jersey initiated a study of the policies and procedures concerning student grouping in the Plainfield School System. As the study proceeded, however, an effort was made to examine other aspects of the operation of the schools which related to the basic concerns which caused the grouping study to be requested. Where possible and appropriate, data have been collected, conclusions drawn and recommendations made that go beyond the question of grouping. In order to highlight the major findings and recommendations emerging from the study, they have been summarized and constitute the first section of this report. The second section provides a descriptive analysis of the present policies and practices concerning the grouping of students for instruction in the Plainfield Schools. A follow-up study of the Class of 1968 from the time the students were in the seventh grade is reported in section three. Student personnel services, with particular attention to grouping, are dealt with in section four. Sections five, six, and seven report the attitudes and opinions of teachers, students, and lay community citizens, respectively. (JM)
