Description

New York: Looking at least as confused as the situation at JHS 271 in the Ocean Hill-Brownsville section of Brooklyn, a policeman on guard at the troubled school watches as the pupils file out after just a few minutes inside, October 1. Public schools operated at near-normal this day except in the racially sensitive area here where the teachers' strike settlement has not been accepted. The strike stemmed from efforts by the local school board, set up as an experiment in school decentralization, to transfer 10 teachers and 100 more who supported them, out of the district without formal charges or hearings.
