This text describes how the failure of racial integration in New York schools led to demands for increased parental powers over schooling and ultimately for "community control". The story of the school reform movement citywide and especially that which grew up on the three officially-sanctioned demonstration districts in East Harlem, Ocean Hill-Brownsville and the Lower East Side is told in detail. The clash between parent and community activists on one hand and majority factions within the teaching and supervisory orgaizations on the other constitutes the bulk of this work. Matters relating to racial, class and gender configuarations are assessed. Broad issues of white racism and black rasicm come under scrutiny, not least in the context of charges and counter-charges which surfaced at the height of the conflict about black anti-Semitism and Jewish anti-black behaviour.
