On 17 December 1976, the Detroit Central Board of Education had officially requested "a management audit" of the decentralized school system from its establishment in 1970. An outline of a proposed "task force" was discussed on 7 March 1977. Three weeks later, State Representative Stopczynski introduced House Bills 4401 and 4466 respectively proposing greater parental control over school curricula and abolition of the Detroit Regional School Boards.

Subjects include: Community participation in city government, Detroit politics, Urban education and Women in education administration and community affairs.
