By STEVE KOPPMAN
Rhody McCoy brought the gos-
p of black community control to
nn Arbor last night.
The administrator of the em-
battled Ocean-Hill - Brownsville
school district in New York told
a crowd of some 300 persons. in
Union Ballroom that the white
educational establishment has dis-
mally failed black students.
"We want to educate our chil-
dren so they can succeed in this
crazy man's society," said McCoy.
He claimed that of the 9,00
children in the Ocean-Hill-
Brownsville district, fully two-
thirds were behind academically
at least two years.
"They've been there for 120
years," said McCoy of the educa-
tional establishment," and they've
produced nothing but failure." -

High school,
students get
press rights
By SCOTT MIXER
The Ann Arbor School Board
last night passed a precedent-
setting amendment to the school
district's bylaws which will grant
high school students greater free-
dom in distributing 'their own
publications.
The approved plan will allow
Huron-Pioneer high school stu-
dents "to write and/or publish
materials and to distribute them
on the school premises" after they
have signed six Articles of Agree-
ment specified in the amendment
The articles ban any "deliberate
misquotations, malicious ridicu
,or obscenity and limit the distri-
bution of any publication to before
or after school hours in the com-
mons or in study halls.
It also stipulates that the au-
thor must sign his material by his
legal name and that the signer i
in no way released from liabilit3
under all existing copyright an
pornography legislation.
The proposal also creates a
committee of five students to b
selected by the student body a
large and five faculty members t
be' elected by the entire hg
school faculty.
The committee will accept an
authorize signed Articles of Agree
ment and will act on any com
plaints by students, teachers o
administrators to d e t e r m i ne
whether a violation of the article
has occurred.
The committee will be empow
ered to recommend to the school'
principal the suspension of an
student found in flagrant violatio
of the articles. The committee ca
also .suggest revisions or amend
ments to the articles to- be ulti
mately voted on by the studen
body and the faculty.
