Sample text

And Al began to fool around with a league of fourteen superintendents headed by Ben Willis of Chicago'. They asked Ford, in effect, for some 'millions to throw at the problem'. Resisting a ' sloppy' approach to handing over large amounts of money, Ylvisaker promoted a 'field force' which went to fourteen cities, talked with the superintendents in the context of local power structures and the civil liberties movement, and got them to 'explain their intentions'. The records show, as Ylvisaker suggests they do, ' the amount of homework we did' (A: FF, Ylvisaker interview, 16-26).

Both the rural areas and the cities were faced with the problems of the rural disadvantaged, with ' a low level of aspiration, a tendency to set only short-term goals, values which differ somewhat from acceptable norms, and a general unfamiliarity with cultural activities which lead to enriched living' (A: Isenberg, 1963, 27). The picture of rural migration is perhaps most clearly seen in a report on Education and the Disadvantaged American published in 1962 by a commission sponsored in part and published by the NEA.

He believed that a continuation of the position was a 'menace to the social and political health of the large cities... the whole problem of financing public education in the large cities is a major national concern' (A: Conant, 1961, 2). The short fuse was attached especially to these city slums, and Conant's educational priorities were determined by that awareness. The book, without offering a detailed analysis of poverty, and approaching it overwhelmingly in terms of Negro (' black' did not begin to replace the term in popular usage until the end of the decade) conditions and education, struck a popular chord, given the source of the comments.
