Each of the projects varies; but they all have one thing in common-to train future teachers who can go into an Ocean Hill-Brownsville area where blacks and whites are in conflict, or in any of the nation's major a double aim: to give the opportunity for college education to qualified high school graduates who could not pay for their own higher education and to recruit Inner -city teachers. A, graduate teacher internship program has been set up at the state university of New York College at Genesee. The program prepares selected students to teach In inner-city schools. It is based on the belief that today's successful in ner-city teacher is different from his predecessors and different from his suburban counterparts. The urban classroom requires someone with whom the pupils can Identify and empathize. More than that the teacher who goes into the underprivileged community, whether the children are black or white, needs to be convinced that the children can be educated and can learn as well as those in the better suburbs. For one year, interns will 'JAPAJUAND OF THE RISING SIN" spend four days a week in inner-city schools. At the East Tennessee State University, a number of inner-city programs are underway, directed by the department of political science. "The Negro who lives in the city congregates mainly In the inner-d-ty.even In small cities," the college points out. ' An urban center teacher, preparation program has been established at Central Washington State College.

SWING JOHNSON-NARRATES IN PERSON DEPARTMENT MANAGER'S By Dr. Ben amln Fine NEW YORK, (NANA) New before in the history of ur nation has the public school system been In as serious a condition as It Is today. A bitter battle Is raging in cities and in suburbs all across the nation. For the most part, the struggle is over the kind of education that the "inner core city" children (meaning for the most part the negroes and ether minority groups) is re-ceiving. The present struggle for control of the schools has come to a head in New York City, where 55,000 teachers, belonging to the United Federation Of Teachers (A.F.L.-C.I.O.), have for the third time since school opened in September, gone out on strike and have prevented more than one million children from getting an education. The issue centers around community versus central control. The showdown came over the operation of an experimental local project, known as the Ocean Hill-Brownsville Community. This area Is mainly composed of Negro and Puerto Rlcan Residents. The Negro leaders insist that they have the right to hire and fire teach-ers-and have exercised that right. Even the orders of the board of education and the superintendent of schnols have been disregarded. As might have been expected, chaos has resulted. The New York State Board Of Regents has recommended that New York City be divided tnto 33 local school districts, each with limited power to eontrol the schools within their communities. Many believe that this may well create 33 new areas of conflict. Whether the million children will get ny schooling this year remains to be seen. What is now happening in New York City may spread throughout the narion-and the public schools will indeed be in danger of extinction. That, of course, can not be allowed to happen. Many responsible educators recognize the Importance of doing something to prevent the public schools from breaking up Into black and white segments, or into nderprlviieged city versus affluent suburban or private chool systems. More than 100 state colleges nd universities located in urban areas across the country have started to work on projects to save the public schools from the bitter conflict tnat looms ahead.

BONNIE WILLIAMS cities where similar crises may or have developed, and try to bring about peace and harmony. Here are a few examples of the programs that the colleges have undertaken to help the children in underprivileged areas get a better schooling Southern Connecticut State College offers a major for preparation of Teachers for disadvantaged youth. Students teach for eight weeks in an inner-city school in their Junior year and in ghetto schools in New Haven in the senior Year. This fall the college, and the New Haven school system has embarked on a three-year project to prepare teachers for Inner-city schools. Northern Illinois University Is encouraging graduates of the teacher training program to return to college and prepare to teach in Inner-city schools. It Is also placing stronger emphasis on the Inner-city for undergraduate teacher trainees. In a survey of sophomores' and Juniors' reactions after visiting inner city schools, 45 per cent expressed a change of attitude and indicated that the Chicago Inner-city schools would be acceptable to them as teaching assignments. Under a Ford Foundation grant and with the cooperation of the Baltimore City Department of Education, Coppln, Morgan and Towson State Colleges In Maryland offer a program designed to attract, retain and prepare outstanding college seniors and graduate students to teach In urban schools. Among other aspects, the programs include a full public school year of Intern teaching and supervision. Specific objectives of the project Include:' Fostering the attitudes, skills and understanding essential for urban teach; ers, eliminating the fears, inhibitions and rejections of working In the inner-city schools, and offering these children a better education through more understanding, flexible teachers. The Newark (N.J.) State College has set up an intern pilot program for fifty women this fall." Participants are' . Newark residents, qualified ' high school graduates who wish to become Inner-city school teachers but who can't afford to attend college. They receive intensive orientation during the summer to bridge the transition to college. Dur- ing the school year, they' serve as teacher aides in the. city's kindergarten and first" grade classrooms and take' nine semester hours of academic work.
