14 Section 1 X It zw - II I 1 CHICAGO. TRIBUNE, THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 1969 D 771 HeMdt's SchoolCouncilPlan IP ANTI-BUSIIIGiVea? Schools Superintendent Reported a Failure BILL PASSED BY H.Y. ASSEMBLY .V, If ii The board of education's attempt to encourage community involvement in school affairs apparently is a failure, it was reported to the board yesterday. The report said that advisory councils authorized by the board more than three years ago are functioning in only six of the city's 27 districts and not very well in some of those. Board Members Displeased Several members of the board expressed displeasure that the councils have not achieved the communication and problem solving they were supposed to bring about. "If we reallv tried, we'd find that this could work," said Mrs. Louis Malis, a board member. "I think part of the failure may stem from the fact that some school officials lack respect for parents and others who are highly educated." Another board member. Mrs. Carey B. Preston, criticized "the limited interpretation," the administration seems to have nut on the councils. leaving most of the power in the hands of the district superintendents. "If this doesn't work, we've got to find something that will," said Jack B. Witkowsky, another board member. "We need some way to hear from the grass roots like this." The report, prepared by three area associate superintendents, quoted several district superin tendents as complaining that their councils want to "play an increasing policy-making or executive function" and "refuse to follow the guidelines" set up by the board. Opposition Encountered Some district superintendents have been reluctant to form councils, the report went on, because "the prospective members run the gamut of polarized opinion from extreme liberalism to extreme conservatism" and a council with such oppo site views "could well prove to be a battle ground." In other action, the board voted to name an elementary school under construction at 128th street and Escanaba avenue after Virgil I. Grissom, an astronaut who was killed dur ing a ground test in January, 1967. tChkaM Trfkww Pnu Stnict Albany, N. Y., March 26 The New York State Assem bly today approved, 104 to 41, a bill to prohibit the busing of pupils away from neighbor hood schools for the purpose of increasing racial balance. The bill is expected to clear the Senate but faces a possible veto by Gov. Nelson A. Rock efeller. The fight over the hot busing issue flared up suddenly and was argued mainly as a quest- tion of local versus outside control of schools. However, Assemblyman Arthur 0. Eve, Buffalo Democrat and a Negro, charged that the bill was a disguised effort to perpetuate segregation of Ne groes. The bill would prohibit the state education commissioner and local school boards from assigning pupils on the basis of race. Many white parents have charged that busing pupils out of their neighborhoods because they are white represents dis crimination.
