Summary

At present, the section of Buffalo in which the majority of the residents are white carries most of the burden of the K-8 schools with their extremely limited seventh and eight grade offerings. The sections of the community in which the majority of the residents are black now carry the heavy burdens of teacher shortage and teacher turnover that result in lower educational achievement. All the schools suffer from lack of even the most fundamental equipment such as books, dictionaries, globes, and maps. The Middle School Complexes can provide a solution that will cost substantially less than simply replacing the existing old buildings at their present locations. The Complex concept also opens up a new potential for a much higher quality of education available to all children on the basis of real equality and without segregation. Each Complex would belong to a larger community as a whole, responsive to and responsible to that total community. This study attempts to plan locations, attendance areas, and organizations for middle schools to make it feasible for the Board of Education in Buffalo to eliminate racial imbalance, progressively, at least from the fifth grade on. Ways to meet this goal are described within the context of the severe plant obsolescence problem and the urgent need to provide ways of improving the quality of schooling at every grade level for every pupil.
