Evening Compass newscast during the first week of Phase II desegregation of Boston schools. Ed Baumeister reads school attendance statistics and gives a summary of the day's events relating to the schools. Pam Bullard reports on efforts by the Boston School Committee, the Boston Home and School Association, and the City of Boston to appeal the Phase II busing plan in court. Bullard notes that the chances of overturning the plan are slim. Paul deGive interviews Father William Joy (St. Mary's Parish) about the residents of and the atmosphere in the Bunker Hill housing project in Charlestown. Joy says that the Catholic Church has not responded to the needs of the project residents. DeGive also interviews teenage project resident Danny Sullivan. Sullivan says that youth in the housing project do not deserve their bad reputation. Gary Griffith interviews Joseph Timilty (mayoral candidate) about the upcoming election. Timilty says that he avoids busing as a campaign issue. Bullard interviews Kathleen Sullivan (Boston School Committee). Sullivan accuses Superintendent Marion Fahey of making school appointments based on politics rather than performance. Judy Stoia reports on the reactions of Boston's Chinese American community to busing. She interviews Louisa Lock (resident), Albert Lau (Bilingual Coordinator) and Peter Chan (Chinatown Little City Hall) on the need for more Chinese American teachers and school aides.
