In 1980 the Milwaukee School Board considered a 1980-90 School Building and Sites Plan which recommends policies for school closings and construction projects for the 1980's. This report by Lois Quinn and Kenneth Robinson of the Metropolitan Integration Research Center discusses the proposals of the School Building and Sites Commission and provides analysis of the three factors which the Commission stated were most important in planning school closings: impact on desegregation, declining enrollments, and budgetary constraints.
