"Administrative Management of the School System of New York City"

The Survey of The Board of Education and The Board of Higher Education report was conducted in 1951 by George Strayer. It is an early effort to reorganize municipal colleges. Among other reports and legislative laws, it documents the shift in policy that would ultimately lead to the consolidation of New York City’s municipal colleges into one coordinated system.

After a year of observation, study and analysis the report made recommendations as to the management of public education and higher education which included an increase in financial support to municiple colleges, the establishment of more junior colleges and technical schools and a transfer of the municipal college system to the State University of New York to excersise full mangerial responsibility.
