Description : Abstract
Pam Bullard interviews Frank Power (Headmaster, Charlestown High School) about preparations for school desegregation and the coming school year. Power says that his first priority is the safety of students. Power says that flexible campus options will be cut back for safety reasons. Power says that many Charlestown students have transferred to parochial schools and schools outside of Boston to avoid busing. Power and Bullard talk informally about the inadequate facilities at Charlestown High School. Students will eat lunch at their desks because there is no lunchroom at the high school. Powers says that the physical education program at the Charlestown Boys Club will be cut due to safety concerns. Bullard does a few takes of her introduction to the Charlestown busing story.
