tant to the chancellor, wrote to
Milton A. Seymour, chairman of
the ADL New York board, in re-
sponse to ADL's protest of the list-
ing methods used by School Dis-
trict No. 9.
Polner said that the chancellor
had "reviewed the matter and
concluded that 'the identification
of individual teachers by race or
ethnic background on a list re-
lating to the hiring of these indi-
viduals. was improper.' "
The letter went on to say that
"Community School Board 9 and
its community superintendent must
refrain from issuing such lists of
personnel which identify individ-
uals by name and race or ethnic
background in connection with hir-
ing, rehiring or promotion."
Polner declared, however, that
"the chancellor in no way ques-
tioned the intentions or motiva-
tions of the community superin-
tendent and no personal criticism
should be inferred. It was also
determined that no individuals had
been discriminated against."
Seymour's protest to the chan-
cellor pointed out that listing by
racial or ethnic background set a
dangerous precedent which could
lead to "reverse racism in em-
ployment practices."
