Commission on Urban Education - RG 590 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Commission on Urban Education - RG 590


Historical Note: The Commission on Urban Education was created by the General Assembly in 1969 to study the problems facing urban education. Specifically it was to determine the relevancy of current curriculum practices to the educational problems of the inner-city or disadvantaged child, determine causes for the wide disparity of reading levels between the inner-city child and the suburban child, determine the organizational structure best suited to the needs of the urban school system, study the concept of community participation within the organizational structure of the urban school system, study the causes for dropouts from the urban school situation, and study any other relevant factors relating to urban educational problems from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. It was composed of five members of the Senate and five members of the House appointed by the legislative leadership and four members of the public appointed by those same legislative leaders. The commission was to report to the General Assembly by February 15, 1971 and then pass from existence on July 1, 1971 (P.A. 76-794, pp. 1625-1626). Its life was extended in 1971 until July 1973 (.P.A. 77-1532, p. 2816).
