REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(Studio) Thrust for community control growing. Can teachers and communities work together? Ghetto schools failed. Parents no longer believe it's children's fault; they want to control who's hired. Local teachers-union in Washington, DC works well with community. May be new criteria for classroom participation set up in NYC. Study shows parents not that unaware of what education is about. Just concerned with education working well.
