- This August 23, 1957 policy statement was prepared by Superintendent Benjamin L. Smith for distribution to principals and supervisors in the Greensboro City School System. Smith clarifies the role of the superintendent in relation to the school board. He encourages school administrators to remain up-to-date on changes in education policy, and explains the current student assignment policy of the Greensboro School Board in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the state legislature's passage of the Pearsall Plan. He addresses the recent enrollment of African American students at two previously all-white schools in the city, and commends the staffs of those schools for their efforts.
