Program explores the upcoming, special, April 2, 1974 referendum vote in Boston to chose one of four plans for restructuring the Boston School Committee, the results of which will be up against a referendum in the fall that proposes no changes be made to the School Committee. Guests Bill Owens (a Massachusetts State Representative), Dorothy Jones (of Model Cities of Boston), and John O'Bryant (of Dimock Community Health Center) debate the merits and weaknesses of each of the plans and speak to the need for local and minority representation in the school system. Discussion moderated by Lee Daniels, staff reporter for Channel 2 News.
