N.Y. SCHOOL PROTEST:
W ite Boycott Cuts Attendance
NEW YORK (I)-More than a
million youngsters were summon-
ed back to New York's public
schools yesterday, but attendanc
was cut by a parents' boycott
against the busing of children tc
achieve racial integration.
The board of education reported ;
275,638 students absent from class-
rooms-some 175,000 above the
normal 10 per cent absenteeism on
an opening day of school. The fig-
ure for yesterday was 27 per cent.
White parents' groups which
sponsored the planned two-day
boycott had predicted 250,000 pu-
pils would take part. Last winter
racial integrationists kept almost
half the 1.05 million students away.
in one boycott and 267,000 away
in a second.
The boycott was called to pro-
test a board of education pilot
plan for speeding racial integra=
tion in public schools by busing
some children away from their
regular neighborhood schools. Pa-
rochial schools with 375,000 at-
tendance were not involved. '
Abstenteeism in the handful of
paired schools whose pupils were
bused ranged from 18 to 65 per
cent. By contrast, however, Har-
lem schools, which are predomi-
nantly Negro, reported normal at-.
